Allotments

Having an allotment gives you the opportunity to grow your own fruit, vegetables and flowers and enjoy being out in the fresh air.

There are 34 allotment sites in Harlow.

All allotment sites have water provided and are enclosed by secure hedges and fences.

Some of the allotment sites are managed by the Harlow Allotment Association and are self-managed by the plot holders themselves.

The cost of renting an allotment plot is 18p per square metre (typically £22.50 for a half plot of 125 square metres and £45.00 for a full size plot of 250 square metres) for the whole year.

You will be eligible for a 50% discount if you are:

  • a pensioner (available from 1 October after reaching pensionable age)
  • a full time student
  • receiving Universal Credit

You will need to provide proof of your eligibility for a discount when you sign your tenancy and every year for renewal.

If you have a back problem or use a wheelchair, there are also raised plots available on a few sites.
