Allotment sites

 

The standard size for one of our allotments is 5 rods (126 square metres).  For a plot of this size the costs are as follows: annual rent, currently £0.53 per square metre equals £67.00 in total; a £65.00 one off deposit for the plot when you sign your letting agreement; an £9.50 deposit for each key to your site and £6.00 EAGS Society membership. If you take on the plot part way through the year you only pay a proportion of the annual rent. Please complete the Allotment Application and submit it, together with proof of Eastbourne residence, to the EAGS Office in Gorringe Road. You can choose to erect a shed, greenhouse and/or polytunnel on your plot within specified size limits, you will need to complete a Structure Application that the EAGS office will print for you. It is also possible to keep hens on your plot; we have produced a set of guidelines that must be adhered to along with a Hen Keeping Application. Our allotment sites are presently 97% full, however, there is a constant turnover of plots and the waiting lists are not excessively long, the sooner you make your application the sooner your name will be at the top of the list!
