Applying for an allotment
Should you wish to apply for an allotment, please use our contact form giving details of your address and the allotment site you are interested in. Due to the popularity of our allotments, you may find that we have a waiting list on some sites. We will gladly take your details and let you know as soon as a plot becomes available. Residents of Hughenden Parish will be given priority on the waiting list.
All allotment tenants are sent two copies of an Allotment Agreement which details the terms and conditions of tenancy. This document must be signed and one copy returned to the Council Office together with the rental fee. By signing the Allotment Agreement you confirm that you have read and agree to Hughenden Parish Council's Allotment Regulations.
Reducing the size of your plot
Typically our plots are divided into full and half sized plots and vary in size from one allotment site to another. Should you decide that a full plot is too much, you may be able to move to a half plot or have your full plot sub-divided.
How much does it cost?
Annual rent varies depending on plot size. Typically, annual rent is £13.00 for a half size plot and £25.00 for a full size plot. Tennancy is renewed on 30th September each year. Letters are sent to all tennents in early September and rent must be paid by 30th September for tennency to continue.
Giving up your plot
You may end your tennancy at any time, there will be no reimbursement of allotment fees. Make sure you harvest any produce and remove all tools. It is not permitted to transfer tenancy.
Annual Allotment Competition
The Council runs an annual Allotment Competition for the accolade of 'Best Allotment' within the Parish. We also award The Bill Dean Cup which is awarded annually to the Best Allotment Newcomer. This was kindly donated by Ex-Councillor Dean in memory of his father, who was a very keen allotment tennant.
Sheds and Greenhouses
Sheds and greenhouses are permitted on allotments but only with the prior written consent of Hughenden Parish Council. Please contact the parish council office if you wish to erect any structure on your allotments.
