Elstree and Borehamwood Town Council manages three allotment sites:
- Melrose Avenue, Borehamwood
- Allum Lane, Elstree
- Stapleton Road, Borehamwood
The reason for an allotment plot is growing fruit and vegetables, flowers and herbs for the plotholder and his or her family. Plot holders said in a recent survey that their love of allotment gardening stems from the fresh air and exercise they enjoy the opportunity to meet and learn from like-minded people in a relaxed, natural environment.
They said that food they grow tastes better and is cheaper, fresher and healthier than that bought at the supermarket.
From time to time we have a small number of vacancies on our sites.
Due to significant recent demand, the waiting list for a plot is currently expected to be at least 1-2 years.
The 2021/22 rate for allotment plots is:
- Melrose Avenue - £5/pole
- Allum Lane - £5/pole
- Stapleton Gardens - £25/plot
There is a 50% concession for Elstree & Borehamwood residents aged 60 or over.
