The Parish Council owns two allotment sites and rents two more, one from Herts County Council and one from St Albans Diocese. There are 198, allotments in total made up of 79 x 5 pole, 8 x 2½ pole and 111 x 10 pole plots. The allotments are located at The Folly (Folly), Gustard Wood (Baxendale) and Marford Road (Glebe and Hitchens). The non-executive Allotments Working Group looks after the day-to-day operation of the plots and there are representatives from each allotment site on the committee.
In addition to allotments, there are three grazing plots in the Parish owned and run by the council and one smallholding. We rent these out on an annual licence. Hertfordshire has a strong horse owning community and there is pressure on grazing sites. When grazing plots become available the council advertises them widely and those interested are invited to submit a sealed tender for the plot.
If you are interested in renting an allotment or grazing plot, please contact the Parish Council office.
