Find out more about applying for an allotment.

Demand for an allotment plot is likely to be high, so to ensure a fair approach you'll be asked to register interest by applying to the relevant allotment waiting list.

Each plot allocated is a ‘starter plot’. These small plots allow more people to enjoy allotment gardening, meet growing demand and give you an opportunity to decide if having an allotment is for you. In time, larger plots will be made available to existing tenants, who will release their starter plot to the next applicant on the waiting list.

The first plots will be allocated according to our growth sites allotment allocation policy [PDF, 14kB] (from 1 October 2014). A percentage of permanent plots will be allocated, depending on occupation levels within the development, with the remainder of the site given over to temporary twelve-month lease plots.

This process will be repeated every October; a tenant might retain the same temporary plot for several years until the development has been completed. A phasing plan for allocation of permanent plot allocation will be made available.
