Pay your allotment rent

Pay your allotment rent

How to pay your rent and how to claim a discount.

Annual rent

We’ll send you an invoice by the end of September.

You'll find instructions on how to pay on the back of your invoice.

If you don’t pay within 40 days of the date of the invoice you’ll have to give up your plot.

You must tell us when you vacate a plot (when you end your tenancy agreement) to avoid being billed and chased for payment. 

Keep any evidence of your payment (such as receipts or an online payment number). If there’s any mix up this can help us to trace your payments.

New tenants

We'll send you an email with a plot offer. You'll need to follow the link in the email to set up an account and pay the interim bill.

Discounts

Discounts are not available on the Price Band A.

Income based discounts

You can get a 50% discount for one plot if you are receiving:

  • Council Tax Reduction
  • Housing Benefit

You must:

  • apply for income based discounts each year, and show  evidence
  • apply from 1 July until 1 August each year
  • and either:
    • give us consent to check your council records or
    • supply evidence  of a housing benefit element to your Universal Credit payment such as a screenshot or scanned letter

You can apply for an income based discount online.

Income based discounts are not applied to interim bills.

Site and tenancy discounts

These are the discounts you may be able to get:

  • 50% for lack of water on site
  • 100% for site representatives
  • 50% for new tenants with overgrown plots (at the discretion of the  Allotments Officer)

Overgrown plot discounts

Plot condition discounts are not applied to interim bills.

If you think that your new plot qualifies for an overgrown plot discount let us know when you sign up for it.  We can’t grant discounts once you have cleared and planted a plot.

This discount is at the discretion of the Allotments Officer or site representative.
