Allotments

NOTICE TO ALL USERS - OPERATION OF THE PARISH COUNCIL’S ALLOTMENTS

ANY PLOT-HOLDER WHO IS SELF ISOLATING BECAUSE A HOUSEHOLD MEMBER IS ILL WITH CORONA-VIRUS MUST NOT VISIT THE SITES

 
The recent Government guidance makes it clear that unless absolutely essential everyone should stay at home and avoid unnecessary contact with other people as this is the best way to reduce the spread of infection. These restrictions place a responsibility on everyone including the Parish Council to do their best to ensure that the advice on ‘social distancing’ is followed. Whilst the Parish Council’s Allotments remain accessible, before entering the site, we would ask you to consider if your visit is really necessary. If the answer is yes, please observe the common sense rules around keeping your distance from others (two metres) where practical and treating any publicly accessible surfaces as potential sources of infection. In particular you may wish to exercise caution when using gates and padlocks and consider using gloves when operating them.

Make your visit as brief as possible - no more than 1 hour.
Treat any publicly accessible surfaces as potential sources of infection.
Ideally visit on your own to take daily exercise.
It is vitally important that you follow all the advice about social distancing and hygiene and do not gather together on site.
Please never wash your hands in the water troughs.

Do not gather to chat.

Do not give anyone a lift to the allotments.

Guidance and advice regarding Covid-19 can also be found via the National Allotment Society website


Stay at Home. Protect the NHS. Save Lives.

 

Renting an allotment is an inexpensive, fun and healthy way to grow your own fruit and vegetables.

The Council has three Allotment Sites within the boundaries of the Village. There are over 120 plots altogether which are located at:

Conbar Avenue

Penfold Lane

Worthing Road

Residents of Rustington will be given priority for any vacant plots but applications are welcomed from those living outside of the Parish. 

Existing tenants may apply for additional plots but are unlikely to be offered a plot whilst there is an active waiting list.  Only one plot per household is permitted whilst an active waiting list exists – please contact the Parish Council for an up to date waiting list status.

If you are interested in applying for an allotment please complete our online application form - Application for allotment tenancy or please download a form here.

You can see an example of the Parish Council’s Tenancy Agreement here
