  • Mine costs me £110 per year but its a tad over 1/3acre. No water but no restrictions either ... There was two pic sty's on it when I moved in ( only one now) and the 'shed' used to house a cow at one time !

    ntg
    Never be afraid to try something new.

      That seems very cheap, actually, for such a large area of land. I know things tend to get cheaper per unit volume the more you purchase in one go, but even so.

        yes its not bad, I think officially mine is plot 52-57 or something like that ... what really means so much to me though is the fact my dad had a plot on here 50 odd years ago but I can't remeber which one it was as I wasn't very old at the time. It was near the gate where you come in and that it .

          • Our allotment is private, my plot size is about 400m3, it's £30 a year base rate, no water or other amenities.
            Keeping poultry will cost double from next year so that will be £60 for me. (not a year on year increase - a one off - as it's been hardly managed for the last few years, I didn't pay for the first two years and could pick my own plot size.)
            I would pay more for water availability, I have 3x 1000L IBCs that my shed guttering connects to, and 30x 10L jerrycans that I pop in my trailer and cart water from home to there - it's only a few minutes away at least, and my house supply isn't metered..

            • Took ours on early 2021 - Nafferton, East Riding of Yorkshire. One off £25 deposit, then £25 per year. Plots are 6x12m. Not much in the way of facilities other than water and reasonably secure fencing. Very happy with it so far - early days, mind!

              • Hi everyone. I just registered today. I have a few acres of farm land in central Scotland(Falkirk)which isn’t currently being used for anything and I was wondering how much money could be generated roughly per acre if it was divided into allotments. I know It depend on a lot of factors, just looking for something as a guide to see if it would be worth pursuing. As far as I’m aware the ground is pretty good for growing as turnips and potatoes were grown there decades ago. Any info welcome.
                Thanks

                • Hi John at around 4 plots per acre at around £25 per plot per year, assuming you install a water supply, that's about £100/acre per year, probably not going to get wealthy on that. Now run as a community project to be an asset to your area, that could be something quite different. Question is are there any people who would wish to be allotment holders in the area, over here in Angus allotments are quite rare, there does not seem to be a demand for them, I suggest turning some common land in our village over to allotments, I was the only one that wanted one, so it didn't happen.
                  If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                  • Hi, thanks for getting back to me. I knew it wouldn’t be great but thought maybe slightly more than that. I know there’s an allotment society in Falkirk where there’s a waiting list for plots so thought I’d ask the question. Myself and my 7 year old twins have just been up building a fence there for our fruit trees that will be coming in the next week or two. So that’ll keep us busy for now but not worth it for me for those kind of prices. I’ll have a wee look at other options but thank you.

                    • Ours are £31 for a half plot and an additional £4 for membership per person. Juniors members pay nothing for membership. The price includes water, off road parking with locked gate. We gave a composting toilet which although they look great in the brochures are very basic in reality. We also have a community poly tunnel where seeds are down for selling to members and after the seeds have gone members can use the space for plants.
