Allotments: frequently asked questions.
Where are the allotment sites?
Southampton Road, Upper Kingston and Hightown Road
How do I get an allotment?
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 will be 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.
How much does an allotment cost?
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.
What facilities do the allotments have?
Each site has its own water supply. Southampton Road and Upper Kingston sites have lockable gates to which tenants are provided with a key for a £10 deposit.
How do I enter the allotment competition?
All plots are automatically judged in the annual competition. Winners will be notified and awards given out each September.
What can I grow on my allotment?
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.
What sizes are the allotments?
A mini plot is approximately 6m x 4m and a single plot is approximately 21m x 6m.
There is an Allotment Association at the Upper Kingston site and the Southampton Road site.
