Waiting lists for allotments
Find your nearest allotment site, check plot availability and waiting times.
Due to a combination of changes to work practices and ongoing Council IT issues, we are unable to process your allotment application at this time. For more details, please read the information below.
When we are able to process your applications your position on your chosen waiting list will be based on your original application date, so this will not affect when you are allocated a plot.
Plots only become available when existing tenants either give up their plot or have their tenancy ended for breaking the rules and this turnover is not constant.
We cannot accurately estimated when you will receive a plot on the site you have chosen, but the average wait for a plot is around three years.
We will contact all applicants over this period to inform them when their applications have been processed.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
Check allotment availability
There are currently waiting lists for plots at all the allotment sites.
You can find your nearest allotment site on the city parks map.
When a tenant leaves a plot, it'll be offered to the next person on the waiting list. The table below shows 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 the 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 can apply for an allotment and pay the waiting list administration fee.
Find your waiting list position three weeks after you've reserved a plot.
