The Parish Council has created and manages allotment gardens in the centre of the village of Langton Matravers.
There are currently 14 full size plots ( 9m x 27m) and 28 half size plots (9m x 13.5 m).
Plots do occassionaly become vacant and anybody resident in the Parishes of Langton Matravers or Worth Matravers can become a tenant by contacting the Clerk to the Council.
Allotments plots are rented out at £50 plus a water charge for the year of £5 for a full plot and £25 per year plus a water charge of £2.5 for a half plot.
The Allotments are on land leased from the National Trust and were created by the Parish Council in 2009 with financial assistance from COMMA (The Community Aggregates Fund). This funding was obtained with assistance from the following agencies:- Defra’s Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund, Dorset Community Action (DCA) and ACRE (Action for Communities in Rural England).
