How to apply

Each allotment site's page shows the location of the site, and lists any plots which are currently available. It is best to go and view the available plots as they are 'sold as seen', using the attached map (PDF).

Once you have found your preferred plot, please contact us with the details: email allotments@north-herts.gov.uk or call 01462 474000.

You can only apply for an allotment if you are a resident in North Hertfordshire.
