Waiting lists for allotments

Find your nearest allotment site, check plot availability and waiting times

There are currently waiting lists for plots at all the allotment sites. 

Check allotment availability

You can find your nearest allotment site by using the city parks map

When a tenant leaves a plot, it will be offered to the next person on the waiting list. You can see on the table below how long the next person to be offered a plot has been waiting. The average waiting time is three to four years and sometimes a lot longer for smaller sites.

When the number of applicants reaches the same as the total number of plots on the site, the waiting list for that site is closed. When the number of applicants goes down, the list is re-opened.

To put your name on one of the waiting lists you'll need to apply for an allotment and pay the waiting list administration fee.

You can find out your waiting list position three weeks after you've reserved a plot.
