Taking a plot

All plotholders sign a simple Tenancy Agreement  which is a legal document that is required by Bexley Council. The rent for a plot is calculated by a cost per Square Metre. Click on the green button below to download our Terms and Conditions.

 

A standard plot is 250 SqMt, but the actual size varies with the different plots’ locations on the site. The annual rent is set by Bexley Council and Delegated sites are allowed to vary this by 2p per SqMt above or below this rent. We are pleased to say that we have always charged the lowest rent we are allowed. The rent for 2018/19 is 34p per SqMt making the annual rent for a standard plot £85 and a half plot £42.50 (£42.50 and £21.25 respectively if receiving subsidy). Rents for years 2019/20 and 2020/21 are shown in the tables below.

 

A subsidy of 50% on the rent is available to over 60’s, registered disabled or those receiving benefits.

 

Out of Borough plotholders are subject to a different rental charge. (Please see the table below for details.)

If you are interested in taking a plot or just want to know a bit more about our allotments, please use the Contact page and we will be happy to discuss and organise a visit to the site.
