Edlesborough Parish Council is a keen supporter of allotments and is responsible for four areas:
Total no. of
|Plots currently available|
|Cow Lane, Edlesborough||29||3|
|Main Street, Dagnall||42||3|
|Leighton Road, Northall||20||
No existing established plots
but new ones could be created from field
All the allotments have a water supply.
The sizes of the allotments vary from a nominal 126.50 m2 (5 poles) to a nominal 506 m2 (20 poles)
Due to the high administration costs involved in collecting late allotment rents, a £10 late payment fee will be charged if full payment is not received by the end of October.
October 2017 to September 2018 £2.00 for 25.30 m2 per year (£2.00 per pole per year)
The most significant costs for operating the allotments are for water and cutting the hedges around each allotment. The Council gave notice to all Allotment Holders in 2009 that rental costs would be increased over a transitional period of 3 - 4 years to achieve the Council's policy for total rental income from all 4 allotments to cover the total cost of operating all 4 allotments.
