There are several allotment gardens within the Eastleigh Town Council area. These were previously owned and managed by Eastleigh Borough Council.

From 1 April 2022, the ownership of the allotments transferred to Eastleigh Town Council as it has a statutory power to own and manage allotments for residents.

For the 24 months to 31 March 2024, the allotments were managed by Eastleigh Borough Council. 

On the 1st April 2024, full management of the allotment sites transferred to Eastleigh Town Council.

The waiting list established by Eastleigh Borough Council has been passed to the Town Council and if your name is on the list, then you will be contacted shortly.

If you would like to be added to the allotment waiting list or have a query then please contact [email protected]


Local allotment sites

  • Burns Close (24 plots with water and toilets)
  • Chestnut Avenue (77 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
  • Lakeside (80 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
  • Monks Way (26 plots with water, toilets and communal store)
  • Tennyson Road (14 plots with water and toilets)
  • Woodside Avenue (47 plots with water, toilets and communal store)

Priority for allotment allocation is given to local residents.

There is a 1-5 year waiting list for an allotment plot, depending on the site requested. All applications will be added to the waiting list and you will be contacted once a plot becomes available.

Anyone living outside the Town Council area should contact their local Town/Parish Council to see if they have allotment plots available. Applications for residents living outside the Parish of Eastleigh Town will no longer be considered.

Plot cost

Plots are measured in rods. The cost of a rod has been set at £12 per rod.

A 5 rod plot will therefore cost £60 for the year.

There is a one-off set-up fee of £30 when taking out a new allotment tenancy and a deposit equivalent to 1 years rent due on signing the tenancy agreement.
