Waiting lists for allotments

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

Check allotment availability

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 an estimate as to how long you may have to wait from joining the list until you're offered a plot. The average waiting time is 3 to 4 years and sometimes a lot longer for the smaller sites.

We close some of our waiting lists for our smaller sites temporarily when the number of applicants becomes greater than the total number of plots on site. This is done to attempt to reduce the expected waiting times.

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

You can find your waiting list position 3 weeks after you've reserved a plot.
