Plot rent

Plot rent varies between £30 for an extra small plot and £85 for a large plot. The rent is linked to Bristol City Council rents and therefore is likely to increase nominally each year.

Discounts and concessions are available however applicants need to apply to Bristol City Council before September 1st, every year.
The Allotment Committee and the Farm are not able to offer discounts directly.

To confirm if you are eligible for a discount you can contact Bristol City Council Allotment Team on 0117 9223737 or speak to someone in the Allotments Team directly at Brunel House, St George’s Road, Bristol, BS1 5UY.
