Six Allotment Sites
The Town Council has six allotment sites, covering around 100 plots, in the Corsham area: The Ridge, at Neston, and The Grove, Cross Keys, Middlewick Lane, Garden of Remembrance and Priory Cross.
There is a long (approximately 2-3 years) waiting list for plots but the Town Council is always on the lookout for additional land that could be leased and made available for use as allotments so the waiting time could be less. If you are interested in having an allotment, please get in touch either by calling 01249 702130 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Allotment rents are paid annually, in advance, and all allotment holders are contacted at the beginning of April regarding payment. Tenants are expected to keep their allotments in a reasonable, tidy condition and sites are inspected annually by the Council. Running water is available at all sites, expect Priory Cross*.
Plot under 100m2: £40
Plot over 100m2: £46
Plot at Priory Cross (no water*): £24
