Apply for a Plot
© Hotwells & District Allotments Ltd 2007-2018
INFORMATION FOR PLOT APPLICANTS We are accepting applications for Alderman Moore, Bower Ashton and White City allotment sites. Some important points about applying for one of our allotments. 1. We can only allocate plots to Bristol City Council Tax payers. Regretably we cannot accept applications from outside this area. 2. We are only taking applications for the 3 sites - as above. 3. Cultivating an allotment plot will mean hard work, at least initially.  Unless you’re very lucky, most plots on takeover will inevitably look a bit like a small jungle.   The secret is to work the plot a little and often. Almost every week of the year. 4.   You   MUST   be   prepared   to   commit,   on   average   over   the   year,   5   to   6   hours a   week,   preferably   more.   So,   before   applying,   please   ask   yourself   "Have   I got   the   spare   time   and   commitment?".   If   you   have   a   young   family   or   a   busy job,   you   might   find   it   particularly   difficult.      We   have   been   let   down   by   people taking on a plot and then finding they do not have the time . 5. How much will it cost? Current Charges are:  Small Plot £36.00, Medium £49.00, Large £62.00 per year (1 Oct - 30 Sep) The   initial   rental   is   charged   pro-rata.      In   addition   you   will   be   asked   to   pay   a one   off   charge   for   either   a   whole   shed   (£30.00)   or   a   shared   shed   (£15.00) and a yearly subscription of £3.00 to the National Allotment Society(NAS). We nearly always start new tenants on small plots . The location of the 3 sites can be found on the Bristol City Council website - links here: Alderman Moore Bower Ashton White City
