Hythe Town Council has 163 allotment gardens which are rented out at four sites – Twiss Road, Longbridge, Horn Street and Eaton Lands (comprising Eaton Lands North, South and Meadow). The allotments vary in size; the cost of renting an allotment is calculated at 52 pence per square metre, so the bigger the plot – the greater the rent! Rents generally range from about £40.00 to about £150.00 per year. In addition, there is a deposit charged which is £100.00; this is returnable if the plot is vacated and is left in good order.
