How do I apply for an allotment?

To be eligible for an allotment you must be the minimum age of 18 years and reside in the borough of Bolton.


Due to very high demand, all of our allotments have a waiting list - (please check this before applying as you may need to wait a number of years).

On completing and returning a waiting list application form for an allotment you will be added to the waiting list and you will be contacted when a plot becomes available for you.

You can apply for an allotment by completing the above application form, alternatively you can obtain a paper form via our 'Downloads' section or you can contact Neighbourhood Services and we will send you a form to complete and return.

What does it cost to rent an allotment?

The fee you pay to rent an allotment will depend on the size of the plot. There are various sizes available but an average full size plot is approximately 250m. A plot this size currently has an approximate annual rental charge £50.00.

Concessionary rates are available for the over sixties, currently this is a 25% discount on the rental charge of a plot. Proof of age may be required.

Rental charges are subject to annual review.
