ALLOTMENT WAITING LISTS 

There is a primary and secondary waiting list for each site. 

THE PRIMARY WAITING LIST 

The primary waiting list is for those in the town who do not already rent an allotment plot from the Town Council, this system operates on a first come, first serve basis and takes priority over the secondary waiting list. 

THE SECONDARY WAITING LIST 

The secondary waiting list is for those who already rent an allotment from the Council and would like an additional plot, this system operates on a first come first serve basis, but will only be considered if there is nobody on the primary waiting lists. 
 
The allotment waiting lists will no longer be published on the website. 
 
 
To enquire about your position on the waiting list or the possibility of renting an allotment, please contact admin on 01271 373311 or email: admin@barnstapletowncouncil.co.uk 

ALLOTMENT NEWS 

Sunnybank allotments has its first hive of bees! 
Allotment Tenant, Angus Basil applied to site a hive on his plot at the Sunnybank allotments. The Allotments Sub-committee welcomed the request and the hive is now in situ. It is thought that this hive is the first to be sited on a Barnstaple Allotment site for over 50 years. 
 
Mr Basil said “There are approximately 25,000 – 30,000 bees in the hive. I have always wanted to train and keep bees as they are important to the ecology and I now have this chance. I must thank Barnstaple Town Council and Barnstaple Allotment Association for their support”. 
 
Mr Mal Chapman, Barnstaple Allotment Association (BAA) said “The Association has an initiative running where the first BAA member from each Town Councils allotment sites will be given a grant of £80 towards purchasing the hive and equipment. Bees are important and we encourage the siting of hives on all sites”.
