Allotment Sites

The Council is responsible for three allotment sites, namely, Rose Walk (Site 1) and Goodearl (Site 2) on Old Blunsdon Road, Haydon Wick and (Site 3) Ventnor Close, off Shanklin Road, Moredon.

There is currently a waiting list for an allotment plot. Where possible, any large plots given back to the Council are split in to 2 or 3 to help ease the waiting list and to ensure the plots given are manageable and fully cultivated. The rent years run October to September, so the best time to reallocate vacant plots is before the turn of the new growing season and rent year.

If you live within the parish and would like to add your name to the waiting list, please complete the form below. The Council also has plans to create an allotment site on land it owns in Tadpole Lane, Oakhurst. There is a waiting list for this site, although there are no specific plans or timescales yet.

Grounds Maintenance Facility Development

Haydon Wick Parish Council has announced exciting plans to support the delivery of their parks and open spaces service with the redevelopment of their existing facility, to enable continued high standards of outdoor spaces maintenance.

The Parish Council’s in-house Parks & Open Spaces (POS) service has increased significantly since 2017, when Swindon Borough Council devolved the responsibility to the Parish Council. As the scale of operation has grown, so has the necessity to improve the temporary service arrangement. The proposed regenerated facility, pending the outcome of planning permission, is to be built at Goodearl Leisure Gardens, home of the current temporary site, and will replace the temporary shipping containers arrangement.
