Colchester Garden & Land Share Register

Small areas of land can be used to grow your own fruit and vegetables or raising other plants . Although not as fashionable as they once were allotments can be an environmentally friendly way of growing your own fruit and vegetables. Colchester council has a total of 18 allotment sites (these are listed at the bottom of this page) and though many of them are full some sites have vacancies.

To find out more about renting an allotment telephone Veronica Cottee on 01206 282909 or pick up a free leaflet from the Angel Court Council Offices.

It has been estimated that you can grow enough fresh food for a year from a plot just 3 square metres.

You will probably make friends, learn about gardening, be able to share tools and plants and receive advice and support from other allotment holders but you may want to consider sharing one with a neighbour or friend to start of with.

However, there are not always allotments nearby or you may wish to use land for other purposes such as storage etc. If you are looking for land you can register your needs by sending me an e-mail and if you have land or buildings that are not being used you can register its availability also.

What type of land can be registered here?

We can all help each other and the environment by making use of our under used assets. They can be available for short or long term. Lets get this land back into use.
