Are you interested in learning more about Marina Allotment? Here are some of our frequently asked questions. Take a look at them below, and if you can’t find what you’re looking for please feel free to email us.

How big are the plots?

Full plots are 5 rods which is approximately 125 square metres. This is considered big enough to grow food for a family. There are also half plots available.

How do I join the allotment?

Just email with your full name, address and telephone number. If there are no plots available, you will be put on a waiting list. Alternatively, complete the form on the homepage here.

Is there a waiting list at the moment?

Yes. There are almost a hundred people on the waiting list. It is currently taking around three years from joining the waiting list to being offered a plot. However, you can still join the allotment as an associate. For more information, please email the committee.

How many plots are there?

There are currently 170 plots on the allotment.

How much is a plot?

The cost per rod is £9.50 per year (£7.40 rent and £2.10 water) plus an association fee of £6 and additional fee of £5 per associate member (family or friends). A full plot with one associate is therefore £58.50 per year.
