Bournemouth currently has 7 allotment sites. The four largest sites, Longbarrow, Bournemouth East, North Bournemouth and Brook Road have a shop, toilets and meeting areas, and are managed by allotment associations on behalf of the Council. Longbarrow was voted the best site in Britain in 2009.
The Council runs the three remaining sites, Merrivale Avenue being the largest with 21 plots.
Opened recently, Elizabeth Gardens boasts eight plots, one being fully accessible. Southill Gardens has ten mini plots, each of them around 21m2. The site is designed for those who
don't feel that a full or a half plot is for them.
You will need to be a resident of Bournemouth to be able to apply for and to continue to hold an allotment plot (except at Talbot Village).
A full plot is 250m2 (300sq yds), although it’s best to start with a smaller plot.
Please be advised that all sites are currently operating a waiting list.
Contact the sites directly for costs and further information.
This depends on the site.
The four larger sites set and manage their own prices. Further details can be found by contacting the sites directly. Contact details can be found below.
The costs for Council-run sites are as follows: (April 2014 to March 2015)
Merrivale Avenue: £4.70 per per 25m2 per year
Elizabeth Gardens: £33 per year
Southill Gardens: £26 per year
