We have over 370 tenanted allotment plots at our Reading Road site in Woodley. All plots have access to a water tank and there is a toilet on site. There is an active Allotment Tenants Committee which meets regularly to discuss issues and organises an annual site clearance.

We maintain a waiting list for plots which is currently estimated between 18 – 24 months. If you would like to be added to the waiting list, please fill out the form below and return to Woodley Town Council.

We offer 10 pole and 5 pole plots, which equate to approximately 250sq metres and 125sq metres respectively; the Allotments Association is also in the process of introducing some smaller Starter Plots.

As of January 2025, the water charge will increase to 50p per pole, per year, and will be charged along with the annual plot rent to go towards the cost of providing water at the site.

Please note: If you are of state pensionable age, the Council will require proof of this in order for you to receive the retired person’s concession.

New tenants must pay a £10 fee for site security and toilet facilities, and a £15 key deposit, per key required.
