Olney has an area of allotments situated at Near Town Gardens, on the eastern side of the town. There are over a hundred plots that are very popular with local residents.
Over the last 3 months we have received an overwhelming number of enquiries with regards to local residents wanting an allotment plot. Our waiting list is therefore currently closed until further notice. Please keep an eye on the website in the coming few months where we will post further information as to when we will reopen the waiting list.
From 1st April 2020 the allotment rent is £3.50 per pole, this is the traditional method of measuring a plot, also known as a rod or a perch and measures 5.5 yards.
With the average plot being 5 poles, the annual charge would be £17.50.
Each year the Allotment Association award the Sidney Dix cup to the best allotment holder.
Olney Allotment Association has a Facebook Page: @olneyallotments and a community allotment website here. ( www.olneyallotments.co.uk)
