How do I apply for an Allotment Garden plot?

If you are interested in renting an allotment plot, write to or telephone: Parish Clerk, c/o Monitoring Officer, Mendip District Council, Cannards Grave Road, Shepton Mallet, BA4 5BT. Email:   Tel: 07498 780143.

If there are allotments immediately available for rent, you will be contacted, either by telephone or letter, to confirm which allotment plot you are interested in renting.  You will then be sent a map indicating the vacant plot for your consideration and then you confirm that the plot is suitable.  Following your confirmation a copy of the allotment agreement and details of the rent required will be forwarded to you to sign and return with payment. Once your signed allotment agreement and rent are received confirming your tenancy you can begin gardening.

If there are no allotment plots immediately available, or there are more applicants than available plots, you will be put on a waiting list.
