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 to 30 September.
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 2020 to 30th September 2021:
Full rate (per rod) £25
Concession (senior and disabled) (per rod) £20
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.
