The Parish is currently working on a project to raise the funds to enable this site to be brought into use.

If you wish to go on to the waiting list for an allotment plot, the new rules state that you must reside in the Loughton or Great Holm area.

Please note that that residents on the waiting list who live in the Parish area will have first priority when a plot becomes vacant, and an additional plot will not be let to a member of the same household who already is a tenant of a plot on the allotment site this is also a recent rule change.

For further details and if you wish to go on to the waiting list please contact the Parish Clerk Brian Barton Telephone: 07779261364 Email: parish.clerk@loughtonandgreatholm-pc.gov.uk
