Join the allotment waiting list

Gardening can benefit you in many ways, and contributes to a healthy lifestyle. The physical exercise involved in tending an allotment will help keep you active and the fresh air, peace and quiet and the opportunity to meet new friends is positive for mental health and wellbeing.

Growing and eating your own food is also extremely satisfying – you’ll know where your vegetables are from and what’s gone into producing them.

Allotment sites are communities of people with shared interests. You will be able to meet new people, make new friends and get involved in the life of an allotment site by sharing seeds, produce and gardening tips. Every site has an allotment association that helps with the running of the site and often organises social events through the year.

Pay for your allotment - select 'miscellaneous', 'parks' then 'allotments'
