At the Parish Council meeting on 1st August 2022, it was resolved that we would transfer the responsibility of the allotments to the newly formed, Trawden Forest Allotments Association.


As such, all enquiries need to be diverted to this group, who have recently set up their own email address.  You need to contact them direct for information on waiting lists, terms and conditions, vacancies of plots, or any other general enquiries.

An allotment is an area of land, leased either from a private or local authority landlord, for the use of growing fruit and vegetables. In some cases this land will also be used for the growing of ornamental plants, and the keeping of hens, rabbits and bees. An allotment is traditionally measured in rods (perches or poles), an old measurement dating back to Anglo-Saxon times. 10 poles is the accepted size of an allotment, the equivalent of 250 square metres or about the size of a doubles tennis court.

Please note that Trawden Forest Parish Council are owners of the allotments at Cotton Tree.
