Allotments

Copmans Wick Allotments

Allotments at Copmans Wick, The Swillett and Dog Kennel Lane may be rented from Chorleywood Parish Council.

Water is available from standpipes from April to October. The Council endeavours to control the boundaries and vacant sites by cutting with flail mowers. In order to do this it is essential that allotment holders dispose of all waste from their allotments within the boundaries of their own plot.

In addition to the charges below, there is a one–off administration charge of £25.00 for new allotment holders.

Once a year, usually in December, an Open Meeting for all Allotment Holders is held prior to the Lawn Cemetery and Allotments Meeting held at the Parish Council offices. This is an important meeting at which Allotment Holders may make their views known.
