Information and costs

The cost is currently £43.00 per year for a full allotment and £23.00 for half allotment.

New allotment holders pay a £50.00 deposit which which is refundable as appropriate when the tenancy ends if the allotment remains in the same or a better condition than when it was let. The application is on the next page, together with a map showing the position of all of the allotments, which are scattered throughout Ulverston. Allotment holders must have a residential address in Ulverston. At the moment there is not a long waiting list for any allotment, except for Mill Dam, which is always very popular. An electronic booking form can be submitted directly to the town council.

An average allotment plot is 200 sq yards (approx). There are some plots measuring 100 sq yards (approx). Whilst we expect allotments to be cultivated, we are also quite happy if they are used as gardens with a grassed area for sitting out and relaxing, as long as at least half of the site is used for cultivating fruit and veg.
