Pay your allotment rent

Pay your rent online and find out how to claim a discount.


We’ll send you an invoice at the end of September each year.

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

Keep any evidence of your payment (eg receipts, online payment number). If there’s any mix up this can help us to trace missing payments.

These are the discounts you may be able to get:

  • 100% for site representatives

Overgrown plot discounts

Plot condition discounts are not applied to interim bills.
