If you are a Berkhamsted resident and would like to rent an allotment, due to the unprecedented demand, please be advised that the waiting list has been temporarily closed to new applicants. Please check our website for any further updates.
The Town Council provides three allotment gardens for rent by Berkhamsted residents, at Dellfield, Butts Meadow and Sunnyside, where there are two sites - Sunnyside Old and Sunnyside New each side of Ivy House Lane.
Each year the Allotment Management Team, comprising Councillors, council officers, and representatives of each site advise the Town Council on the allotment rent and water charges for the allotment year which runs from 29 September to 28 September each year.
Each allotment holder is required to pay a rent for their allotment on time, to abide by the allotment rules and guidelines and to maintain their plot properly. The allotment garden rules are available below.
Applicants on the waiting list will be contacted by the site representative when a plot becomes available and should only submit the tenancy agreement form when they have been assigned a plot.
Berkhamsted Town Council does not accept cash or card payments. Payment for your allotment can be made by cheque or bank transfer.
