Location and rents

Northchurch allotments are on two sites in New Road; the lower site with 33 plots and the upper site with 50 plots. Some plots are subdivided. There is a waiting list and priority is given to Northchurch residents. If you would like a plot, please email our clerk.

  • Rent for Northchurch Residents is £30 for a full plot and £19 for a half plot including water for hand-held hoses.
  • Residents outside Northchurch pay an extra £6 for a full plot and £3 for a half plot.
  • Rent is paid to the Parish Council by the end of October each year.
  • You can find our conditions of hire at the bottom of this page.

We rent the north of the site to three organisations:

  • Sunnyside Rural Trust (SRT), a charity offering work experience for over 130 vulnerable local people and a farm shop.
  • Sunnyside Nurseries that sells hardy perennials, alpines & ornamental grasses.
  • O2, the telecommunications company, who have a mast disguised as a tree.
