Rotherham Allotment Alliance

Growing the Community

Welcome to the website for the Rotherham Allotment Alliance. From January 2020 the RAA took full responsibility for the management and administration of all allotment sites and plots previously managed by Rotherham MBC, this consists of over 25 sites and over 1000 plots. Within Rotherham, there are also a number of allotment sites provided by Town and Parish Councils and other providers. Please check under ‘Our Allotments’ for a full list of all allotment sites being managed by the RAA.

Our Mission Statement: The Rotherham Allotment Alliance aims to provide, promote and develop allotments in Rotherham so that they offer people of all backgrounds and abilities opportunities to enjoy gardening in safe, secure, accessible and environmentally sustainable surroundings. In doing so, it will make efficient use of available resources to ensure that the service is financially self-sufficient whilst remaining affordable to those who want to use it. It will do this by:-

• enabling allotment societies to flourish on sites where they already exist,
• providing guidance and support to such societies where required,
• managing sites which do not have societies efficiently,
• promoting the establishment of new allotment societies on sites that do not currently have them and/or establishing a volunteer base for sites that are unable to form a society,
• developing and implementing plans for the improvement and promotion of allotment gardening across the borough of Rotherham
