The Town Council provides 100 Allotment Plots on three sites over four areas at:

Allyn Saxon Drive/Somerset Close, Whitstone Road and Hitchen Lane.

Tenancies last for one year at a time and fees vary according to the size of the plot:

The current prices of the allotments are:

Large: £52.00
Medium: £39.00
Small: £26.00

From 1st October 2024- 30th September 2025 the prices will be:

Large: £56.00
Medium: £42.00
Small: £28.00

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

Shepton Mallet has some talented green fingered gardeners. During mid-August, all allotments are judged according to various criteria and an awards ceremony is held to celebrate the winners.
