Eckington Parish Allotments
Allotments in Eckington Parish
Allotments are a great way to produce affordable, fresh and healthy fruit and vegetables, get some fresh air and introduce the whole family to gardening. Every autumn you can see the results of the allotment owners' hard work around Eckington and Marsh Lane, as pictured on this page.
Eckington Parish Council manages four allotment sites in the Parish. These allotments are available to anyone who lives in the Parish of Eckington. Three of these sites are in Eckington at School Street, Ducksett Lane and Lansbury Road, and one in Marsh Lane. Rents are very reasonable and vary according to the size of the allotment plot. Annual rents are typically around £12.50 to £14.50 for a standard plot and £22 to £32 for a larger plot. Water is an additional charge where it is available.
As they become free allotments are allocated using a waiting list which is open to residents of Eckington Parish. To join this waiting list, fill in the online form below or, contact the Parish Clerk.
Eckington Parish Council requests allotment holders to park considerately when visiting their allotments to prevent causing local residents access problems.
