West Devon Borough Council does not own or manage any statutory allotments; however some town and parish councils in our area do.

Parish and Town Councils and a number of other groups own or manage allotments in various towns and villages, but West Devon Borough Council has no access to waiting list data.

The following is a list of Parishes with allotments and links to their websites.

Town or village Location
Bere Ferrers South of Bere Alston, to west of Fore Street
Chagford On southern side of Chagford, to east of New Street
Hatherleigh North of Hatherleigh, adjacent to A386
Horrabridge On eastern side of Horrabridge, to south of Knowle Terrace
North Tawton North of Fore Street, behind dwellings
Okehampton Castle Road and Fatherford Road
Tavistock Butchers Park Hill

West Devon does allow some pieces of land to be used as garden land under licence by local residents on application. It must be stressed that these are not statutory allotments and any agreement for their use is at the Council's discretion.

The only land we operate a waiting list for is an area of 4 plots at Crelake in Tavistock.

In all other cases, a request to use Council land for this purpose is considered on a case-by-case basis when an approach is made by a member of the public.
