Soham Town Council has a Duty to consider where there is resident Demand provision of land for allotment use. Soham Town Council has provided land for Statutory Allotment use since the 1930’s at:
- Berrycroft (Statutory Allotments owned by Soham Town Council)
- Millcroft (The Butts under a land lease arrangement with Pembroke College-not Statutory but temporary land provision) & at
- Weatheralls (Statutory allotment land under 2 legal arrangements)

Soham Town Council is a member of NSALG.
To enquire about current availability, waiting lists and applicable fees please contact the Town Office.
Currently Cllr Warner is the Team Lead Cllr for Allotment matters
Soham Town Council is looking at all its land holdings including allotments to investigate whether any of its assets could be better used or repurposed for its ever growing population and as consequence changing resident needs. Whilst the Council currently has no intention of selling any Statutory Allotment Lands which are restricted by Law to their use or disposal where it does consider such option it will not only be with resident consultation, at market rate, under consideration and assistance of NSALG and will require application to and the written permission from the Secretary of State.
It should be noted that unlike Statutory Allotment provision Millcroft is not restricted under these legal requirements.
