Allotments

*Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and in order to protect the health of our staff and the public, we have suspended the letting of allotments until further notice'*

There are 12 allotment sites in Runnymede Borough. Here is some general information about the council-managed sites and the self managed sites.

Council -managed sites
Nine of the sites are managed directly by us, so we handle the letting of plots and site maintenance.

Self-managed sites
Three of the allotment sites (marked with asterisks* in the list below) are self-managed. This means they're leased from us and run by the plot holders, who set plot fees and manage most of the maintenance.
We're keen to encourage the move to self-management for all of our sites. If any existing plot holders would like to explore this option, please contact the Allotments Officer.

Plot sizes
Allotments are traditionally measured by the rod - a unit of measurement equating to approximately 25 square metres. Most plots in Runnymede are between five and 10 rods (125 to 250 sqm).
