Use this page to find out more about allotment rent prices, deposits and discounts.
The annual rent for an allotment plot is £15.69 per 25 square metres, plus a flat charge of £9 for water. We will be increasing annual rent to £16.79 per 25 square meters from 25 September 2024.
This water charge does not apply to plots at Lyncombe Vale, which has a stream rather than piped water.
The size of a plot is measured from the centre of the path and around the plot, not just the digging area.
You will need to pay a £10 deposit to obtain an access key for your allotment site.
You can do this by visiting our Bath Housing, Welfare, and Advice Service at 3-4 Manvers Street, Bath BA1 1JQ. Please bring photo identification such as a current passport or driver's licence, as well as your allotment plot offer letter.
