Chichester City Council owns and manages a total of 14.5 acres of allotment land spread over seven sites within the City

All of these sites are secured by locked gates and have a water supply available between March and October. There are currently over 450 occupied plots with most plots being 5 rods in size or smaller (approximately 125 square metres or less).

We have plots to suit beginners as well as more experienced gardeners and rent for 2024/2025 is £11.00 per rod per annum.

NOTE: Only residents of the Chichester parish (the PO19 postal code area) may apply for an allotment.

These sites are:

  • Florence Road
  • Blackberry Lane
  • Kingsham Avenue
  • Roman Amphitheatre
  • St James
  • St Pauls, Little Breach
  • Whyke Road

The popularity of allotment sites means that in most cases a waiting list is maintained.
