We have received reports of untended and unworked allotments and as such we are currently collating up to date information regarding allotments and will be chasing up payments where these are overdue.
There is a small waiting list for allotments which by mid 2020 should have allotments allocated to them across both sites as a result of the giving up of allotments.
Notice has been issued to allotment holders where leases remain unpaid, and the Council will be reclaiming allotments which remain unpaid by end May 2020. In this case, recovered allotments shall be re-leased to those people on the waiting list on a first come first served basis.
Allotment fees have not changed or been reviewed for a period of time now, these fees will be reviewed in September 2020 when the annual lease is renewed.

Fancy running an allotment?
The Town Council run two allotment sites in Uppingham. There are 17 plots situated off Tod's Piece and Tod's Terrace – these were the first allotment plots offered by the Council. This site was supplemented by a larger and more spacious site off Leicester Road.
Leicester Road currently has over 70 plots the majority of which are occupied and in use. If you are interested in renting an allotment the current charge for a full plot is £25.00 per annum. There isn't an allotment holders association in operation at either site and renewals for the annual rent take place in September each year. There is a short waiting list and you can add your name to it by completing this short submission form below.
If you have any questions just call the Town Hall or email.
