What is an allotment?
The average allotment is a plot of land comprising of 300sq yards (or 253sq.m). On your allotment plot you can grow fruit and vegetables or flowers.
How do I get an allotment?
Please use our online Allotments Application Form or contact us to determine if a plot is available at a site we manage or to get the contact details of association run sites. Some sites are in particular demand and a waiting list may exist, if this is the case you will be added to the list and contacted when a plot becomes available. If a plot on a council managed site is available an Allotments Officer will meet you at the site for you to view the vacant plot.
Once you have selected a plot you must sign a tenancy agreement before your possession of the plot can be granted.
Sheds and greenhouses
If you wish to erect a shed or greenhouse you must seek permission from the Parks Development Team.
