Apply for a Plot

INFORMATION FOR PLOT APPLICANTS We are only accepting applications for Alderman Moore allotment site. Some important points about applying for one of our allotments. 1. We can only allocate plots to Bristol City Council Tax payers. Regretably we cannot accept applications from outside this area. 2. We are only taking applications for Alderman Moore site. 3. Cultivating an allotment plot will mean a lot of hard work, at least initially.  Unless you’re very lucky, most plots on takeover will inevitably look a bit like a small jungle.   The secret is to work the plot a little and often. (I.E Every week of the year). 4.   You   MUST   be   prepared   to   commit,   on   average   over   the   year,   5   to   6   hours a   week,   preferably   more.   So,   before   applying,   please   ask   yourself   "Have   I got   the   spare   time   and   commitment?".   We   have   been   let   down   by   people taking   on   a   plot   and   then   finding   they   do   not   have   the   time .   See   also   the excellent advice on the “ All about Allotments” website   (opens in new tab). How long will it take to get allocated a plot? Approximately 3 to 6 weeks. How much will it cost? Current Charges are:  Small Plot £36.00, Medium £49.00, Large £62.00 per year (1 Oct - 30 Sep) The   initial   rental   is   charged   pro-rata.      In   addition   you   will   be   asked   to   pay   a one   off   charge   for   either   a   whole   shed   (£30.00)   or   a   shared   shed   (£15.00) and a yearly subscription of £3.00 to the National Allotment Society(NAS). We always start new tenants on small plots . The location of Alderman Moore site can be found here on the
