Anyone over the age of 18 can rent an allotment from the Council or one of our allotment societies.

We have 24 allotment sites across Redbridge, with the Council managing 14 of these.

Facilites on allotment sites vary but usually include piped water and toilets.  Some sites have parking and society trading huts.

The rent is reviewed every year and varies according to the allotment site. Rent ranges between £73.50 and £90.50 a year.

Concessions are often available for pensioners, the registered disabled and the registered unemployed.  Find out how to apply for a Leisure Pass.

Limited Offer: Half Plots now available in Hainault

There are currently a number of half plots available to rent at Forest Farm.  This site has both able-bodied and disabled toilet facilities.  Email or call the Allotments Officer for further details.

What happens next? Allotment1Allotment in Goodmayes

We will contact you within ten working days.

If your chosen allotment site has plots vacant for rent arrangements will be made to meet you on site to view the plots that are available.

You will then be sent two copies of a tenancy agreement, both of which need to be signed and returned to us, preferably in person so that keys to the allotment gate and toilets can be collected. Gate and toilet keys are £5 each.

If we cannot offer you a plot on your chosen allotment site you will be put on a waiting list and, where possible, offered an alternative allotment site. Please note this only applies to residents of the London Borough of Redbridge.

 

When is the best time to rent an allotment?

You can apply to rent an allotment at any time - though it is often best to take a plot in the Autumn so you can prepare it for Spring planting.

For more information please contact the Allotments Officer
