Liss Parish Council manage approximately 140 individual plots at 6 separate allotment sites around Liss. Allotments have become increasingly popular over the last decade and there is currently a waiting list for plots. Please contact the Parish Office if you wish to be added to the list and include your full postal address. (Please note that plots are only available to residents of Liss).

Allotment Users Group
An allotment users group was formed in 2008 to allow tenants to discuss any issues with the Grounds Committee. These meetings have resulted in improvements to the allotment sites, such as improved security and water installation. Please report any issues to your representative, details of which are displayed on individual site gates.
