Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council provides over 100 allotment plots over two sites:
- Love Lane, Burnham-on-Sea, which has 75 plots leased to an Allotment Association
- Walrow, Highbridge, 36 plots managed by the Town Council
Allotments provide a valuable green space that gives people the opportunity to grow their own food, eat healthily, reduce their carbon footprint and improve health and wellbeing. Allotments provide opportunities for education, to be active, meet other people, and share knowledge, information and food.
Currently there are waiting lists for both allotment sites. It’s great news that people want to engage with the outdoors to grown their own food, but it does mean that we are unable to offer new tenancies at the present time.
When a plot becomes available, the person at the top of the waiting list is invited to view the plot, in its current state. If they wish to take it on they will be asked to read and sign the allotment tenancy agreement and to pay an annual rent.
Tenancy agreements typically include obligations to keep the plot clean, free from weeds, well cultivated, and for paths to be kept tidy and free of detritus.
If you are a resident of Burnham-on-Sea or Highbridge and would like be added to the waiting list to rent an allotment plot at Walrow, Highbridge, please contact:
