Parish Councils have an obligation to provide an allotment site if there is a demand by 10 or more residents. The Parish Council identified the site adjacent to the A404 in Queensway as suitable for allotments. This site is leased to the Parish Council from the Ernest Cook Trust and is maintained by the Parish Council.
There are now over 50 plots and a waiting list. Hazlemere residents have priority to have an allotment over non-residents.
Members of the Public are very welcome to add names to the waiting list by emailing the Clerk's Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org giving your name, full address and phone number. An acknowledgement will be sent confirming that your name has been added to the list.
The Hazlemere Parish Council's Allotment rules and fees are reviewed annually; the allotment tenancy agreement is available on this page.
An annual allotment competition takes place in the summer, judging is undertaken by Councillors and a presentation is given to the winners at the Autumn Meeting of the Council.
During 2013 a lot of improvement work has been undertaken on the site by the Parish Council and Allotment Holders in levelling the bottom of the site to enable allotment holders to construct permanent compost bins as a 'No Dumping Rule' applies to this area, self policed by the Allotment Holders. A new side gate is being erected, together with replacement fencing on the other side of the plot. The paths between allotments are maintained by the allotment holders and the centre path is cut by the Parish Council, together with the hedge along Queensway which is cut twice a year with a flail.
