Tenancy Renewals and Annual Rent – 2022

Annual allotments rents are due from the 1st January 2022. The Town Council will be issuing new Tenancy Agreements and rent collection. The deadline for the payment of rent is Monday 31st January 2022.

Please note the Town Council offices will be closed for the Christmas period between Wednesday 22nd December and Tuesday 4th January 2022.

The collection of rent is difficult again this year as we are unaware of what restrictions may be in place during January and it is the Councils responsibility to keep its staff as safe as possible. Therefore, the preferred method of payment is by bank transfer.  Letters have been sent to all existing tenants providing details of payment.

Should you be unable to pay using this method please contact the office for details of the current opening times as rents will need to be paid at the Town Council office. Cheques will need to be made payable to Canvey Island Town Council, or you may pay with cash.

All Tenancy Agreements must be returned to the office signed and with a copy of the signed allotment rules.  The cost of the annual rents will remain unchanged at £32.50 for half plot and £65.00 for full plot.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause; however, I am sure you can appreciate the difficulties we face, and we will do our best to accommodate any issues. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Julie Smith-Port or

Allotment Plot

In September 2008, the Town Council took over the management of the two allotment sites at Smallgains and Waterside Farm from Castle Point Borough Council. These two sites currently accommodate around 100 tenants over a mixture of full and half plots. The Town Council is extremely grateful for the close working relationship it has with the Canvey Island Horticultural Society which oversees the allotments on a day-to-day basis.

The charge for a full plot is £65 and a half plot is £32.50. This includes the usage of water supplied by the Town Council.

Renting an allotment enables you to get out into the fresh air and exercise in a friendly environment with people who share your interest in gardening and it is also a great way to teach children about growing food and reducing air miles. If you would like the opportunity to improve existing and learn new growing skills, meet local people with a shared interest and possibly improve your health and fitness at the same time, please contact the Council Office to ascertain plot availability.
