This page provides information on the allotments we have in the borough, their locations and how to apply for an allotment plot along with contact information
We have four allotment sites containing more than 300 plots of various sizes; two sites are located in Oadby and two in Wigston.
In Wigston the plots are situated on Aylestone Lane and Manchester Gardens (Blunts Lane). In Oadby the plots are situated on Brabazon Road and Wigston Road.
If you are interested in taking on an allotment plot please complete and submit an application using the tab below. Once we receive your application you will be placed on to the waiting list and contacted when a plot becomes available. Waiting time for a plot on the Aylestone Lane or Wigston Road sites is currently around 3 months. Applications are welcome for plots on Manchester Gardens and Brabazon Road but plots on these sites do not become available very often.
Please note that we are unable to let plots to people living outside of the Borough.
We encourage the growing of good nutritious produce as a way of improving the health of the Borough.
- Annual rental per plot varies depending on site and facilities. There is a 25% discount for tenants aged 60 years or over. Please contact us for details.
- There is a £55 deposit required per plot - refundable on vacation so long as the plot is in a clean tidy condition
- A gate key is provided (where applicable)
- Plots are allocated in order of waiting list application date
Taking on an allotment requires long term dedication through frequent visits and hard work, in order to keep the plot up to an acceptable standard of cultivation.
