Allotment rent is charged according to the size of plot per rod per year. A rod is approximately 25 square metres. The rate per rod is set annually by Wandsworth Council.
The allotment rent year runs from 1 October 2021 to 30 September 2022.
The average size of an allotment plot is 2.5 to 3 rods.
To claim the disabled rate you must provide evidence of disability. To claim the senior rate you must provide evidence of date of birth and be aged over 65 at the date the rent is due (1 October)
Rent charges from 1st October 2021 to 30th September 2022:
Full rate (per rod) £25.40
Concession (senior and disabled) (per rod) £20.30
Rent charges from 1st October 2022 to 30th October 2023 will be:

For most sites we also recharge the costs of water at £5.42 per rod.
The Beatrix Potter site pays its own water charges via the site committee. The annual water charge per site is divided amongst plot holders at that site.
Please note that failure to pay the rent can lead to your allotment tenancy being terminated.
