Paying for your allotment

Paying your invoice 2024-25

Invoices will be sent out in April by email. If you would like to receive your invoice by email, contact us at before 1 March 2024.

Tenants receive an invoice each April for the 12 month period 1 April to 31 March.

New tenants starting part way through the year pay a pro rata amount.

It is important to follow the payment instructions on the back of the invoice carefully otherwise there may be a delay in allocating the payment to your invoice.

If you want to pay by cash or cheque you can do so at the Post Office.

Direct Debit

We can now offer direct debit payments to tenants for invoices of £40 or above.  If you would like to pay by direct debit, please complete the blue mandate form and return it to us by 1 March 2024.

Payment plans

We can offer payment plans to spread out the cost of your allotment. Please contact us in April if you would like a payment plan so that we set this up promptly.


If you are eligible for a concession, contact us with recent evidence by 1 March 2024.

Ending your tenancy

If you wish to end your tenancy before the invoices are released, contact us by 31 March 2024.

Tenancy Transfers

If you wish to transfer your plot to an immediate family member or co-worker, contact us by 1 March 2024. This will ensure the transfer takes effect in the coming year.

Notice to Quit

A new policy regarding Notice to Quit came into force in 2017.

If you receive a Notice to Quit for non-payment of rent for the third time during your tenancy, the notice will not automatically be withdrawn if we receive payment during the notice period. This ‘three strikes rule’ is strictly enforced.

Late payments cost us time and money and this impacts on all our tenants. If you are having any problems paying, please contact us as soon as possible so we can help.
