With an allotment comes fresh air, home grown produce, healthy lifestyle and a social community of people with similar interests. There are 15 allotment sites across the borough. 


We currently have a limited number of vacant plots.

There are only a few people on the waiting lists below and you could work your way to the top of the list sooner than you think!

If you wish to be placed on any of these waiting lists, please see the section below on How do I apply for an allotment ? 

All our allotment sites have waiting lists. We can add your details on up to 3 allotment site waiting lists of your choice, but you are only entitled to one plot.
