Edlesborough Parish Council is a keen supporter of allotments and is responsible for four areas:


Total no. of

'whole' plots

Plots currently available 
Edlesborough Green 26 0
Cow Lane, Edlesborough 29 0
Main Street, Dagnall 42 6
Leighton Road, Northall 20


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)

Allotment Waiting List:

The Council now holds a waiting list for plots at all sites. Any person interested in taking on a plot should in the first place provide their contact information to the Clerk to be added to the list. When a plot comes available the Clerk will consult the waiting list and offer the plot to a new tenant accordingly. Tenancy applicants that reside within the Parish of Edlesborough will be given priority where there is a waiting list.  

Allotment Rents:

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 2023 to September 2024   £2.10 for 25.30 m2 per year (£2.10 per pole per year)

** Notice was given in September 2023 that the rent will increase to £2.30 per pole per year from October 2024.

The most significant costs for operating the allotments are for water and cutting the hedges around each allotment site. 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.

If you are interested in taking on an allotment, or would like any further information, please contact the Parish Clerk: Phone: 01525 229358     e-mail: [email protected]
