Allotment waiting lists

Allotment waiting lists

Some allotments are very popular and have waiting lists. You can only be added to one waiting list at a time.

When you apply for an allotment we will let you average waiting times for that plot. We can not give an exact date. The average waiting time across the borough is three years.

Choosing your allotment site

Look at our Allotment Locations and Site Details to choose the allotment site that's right for you.  Once you join the waiting list it is for that allotment only. If you want to choose another allotment you will join the bottom of the new waiting list.

You should think about:

  • how far the allotment is from your home
  • if you can get to your site with tools
  • if you can still do this in winter when it gets dark earlier.

Accepting an allotment site

As soon as you reach the top of the list and plot is free we will email you. It important you let us know if your email address changes. We will send you details about the plot and a map showing its location.

Once you've recieved this email you have seven days to accept before we withdraw the offer. If the plot is not suitable for you, please contact us. If you do not contact us within 28 days we will take you off the waiting list.
