Saffron Walden Town Council has two allotment sites; one at Little Walden Road and the other at Crocus Fields (or Byrds Farm Lane).
There are 89 plots, 51 at Little Walden Road and 38 at Crocus Fields. There is a waiting list which you can apply to join, and to be eligible you must be a resident of Saffron Walden. Whilst there is a waiting list, the Council is always on the lookout for new sites. The Town Council works closely with Saffron Walden Allotment and Leisure Gardeners’ Association (SWALGA) to ensure that a high standard is attained and that as much assistance is given to the allotment holders. Membership of SWALGA can be arranged through the Town Council. Allotment rents are currently £60.20 pa for a full plot and £40.52 pa for a half plot (including water rates). The rent will rise by 5% in April 2022. It is a requirement that all plot holders must hold public liability insurance. This may be obtained through membership of Saffron Walden Allotment & Leisure Gardeners Association (SWALGA) or privately.
