Havant Borough Council has 12 allotment sites, with a total of 770 plots, that are managed by partner Norse South East (NSE). 

The provision of allotments by local authorities is an important part of offering recreational facilities to residents. Allotments can provide many things to different people including an opportunity for flat tenants to have a garden or people with gardens to extend their growing possibilities. They can also offer physical exercise outdoors, growing fresh vegetables, social interaction, plant and knowledge sharing.
