Welcome to Eastbourne Allotments

EAGS manages around 1,200 allotments across 14 sites in Eastbourne on behalf of Eastbourne Borough Council.  To apply for a plot you must be over 18 and a resident of Eastbourne. 


A standard allotment measures 5 rods or 126 square metres, although we have smaller and larger plots available.  For the 2022/23 rent year the annual cost including water is £0.55 per square metre, £68.67 for a 5 Rod Plot.  In your first year a deposit of £65.00 must be paid. 


Maps and addresses of all our sites can be found in the Allotments menu tab where you can also print off an application form.  Completed forms should be sent to the EAGS Office.  Alternatively call into our office in Gorringe Road to complete a form and find out more information.


The office is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9.00 to 12.00.  We are closed Mondays.
