Our allotments are extremely popular and there may be a waiting list at all sites. For more information on how to be included on the waiting list please see below or call 01425 473883.
Allotments are provided for any resident, over the age of 18, who lives within the Ringwood parish boundary, subject to availability.
A chronological waiting list is kept and allotments will only be let to residents, over the age of 18 of neighbouring parishes, if there are no Ringwood residents on the list.
With effect from October 2015, a ground deposit of £24 is required at the start of an allotment tenancy.
For new non-resident applicants, the charge will be double that of residents. *The Upper Kingston fees includes the recharge for the annual cost of vermin control arrangements at the allotments.
Each site has its own water supply. Southampton Road, Upper Kingston and Crow Arch Lane sites have lockable gates. Tenants are provided with a key for a £10 deposit.
All plots are automatically judged in the annual competition. Winners will be notified and awards given out each September. See 2022 winners here There was no competition in 2023.
We are happy for you to grow whatever you want on your allotment within reason and within the law! We would also ask that you give consideration to your neighbours when deciding what to plant.
A mini plot is approximately 6m x 4m and a single plot is approximately 20m x 6m.
The Council has made a grant aid award of £2,000 to Ringwood Junior School PTA (click on the photo for details).
Many Ringwood business owners believe that the big companies or online retailers might not even notice your purchases over the next few weeks but the small, independently owned businesses located conveniently on your high street or in your local town will. This Christmas, they want you to believe in the magic of shopping locally - so you can make your town or village merry and bright for many more for years to come.
All residents are invited to complete a short anonymous survey about how safe you feel in the town and what concerns you might have about crime and antisocial behaviour.
