    60 for a 5 rod plot on a site which is fenced and has water every 3 plots 40 with concession. Went up from 25 in 2011 to 60 but nobody challenged it ;/.

    Not got any council plots in West Lothian (yet) but the one I could find was part of a garden center in Linlithgow. for a 4 Rod site it costs 150 but you get water, a shed and a discount at the garden center.

    I know the council are currently in the process of doing their first allotment and have allocated land for it. They are now doing soil testing even though the land has never been used before.

    5 rod plot, 22 per year. Includes/Benefits:
    NSALG membership
    Toilet
    Very well stocked shop
    10 deposit for key (secure perimeter fence)
    Water every 4 or 5 plots
    Sheds/greenhouses/polytunnels allowed (there is a shed on most plots)
    Bees allowed
    Large amounts of horse manure delivered on a regular basis (free, first come, first served basis - in reality there is enough to go around as there is so much).

    I think they are but with only about 9 out of 150 plots empty there is a demand due to no competition.

    30 this year. It was 30 last year, and 29.50 before that, and 29 before that (we're not council-run. If we were, I suspect it would be 300 pa)
