Allotments are a good way of producing healthy fruit and vegetables at a relatively low cost, and you can produce them organically if you want to.

We manage 3,000 allotments over 70 sites, including plots designed for disabled people (wheelchair and non-wheelchair users).

Things to consider before you apply

New allotment holders find that they quickly develop new skills and knowledge and many plot holders see the development of their allotment as part of a positive lifestyle choice. However there are a few things to think about before you rush into getting your first plot:

  • health and physical ability
  • time commitment
  • size of your plot
  • learning what to do and when
  • maintaining motivation
  • it takes a great deal of time

Allotments waiting lists & vacancies
