We manage 11 allotment sites in Letchworth and Hitchin.

Apply for an allotment

Each allotment site's page shows the location of the site and lists any plots which are currently available. We do not have waiting lists and we are not able to contact individuals when plots become available.

If you are interested in renting an allotment plot, we advise viewing the available plots as they are 'sold as seen'. Use the downloadable site plan on each site’s page to locate vacant plots.

Once you have found your preferred plot, please contact us with the details: email or call 01462 474000.

Prices for 2024-25

Plot size Price Concessionary price
Full plot £172.00 £86.00
Half plot £86.00 £43.00

Concessions are available if you:

  • have reached your state pension age
  • are in receipt of Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and Attendance Allowance, Employment Support (Income Related only), Universal Credit, or Council Tax Reduction Scheme
  • are a full-time student over 18 years of age.

If you have received an invoice for your allotment, you can pay online.

Compost bins

The Herts WasteAware Partnership have information on home composting and buying a home composter, which can be really useful on an allotment plot.
