In 2019 the Council helped to set up a community benefit society called Rotherham Allotment Alliance (Ltd), in order that allotment tenants would have more say in the way allotments are run for their benefit. Through a board of directors who volunteer their time for the benefit of allotment tenants, all income derived from allotment tenancies is ringfenced to provide onsite services and improvements.

Since January 2020 the Rotherham Allotment Alliance has directly managed all Rotherham Council’s Allotments on behalf of the Council and their website can be found here.
