Availability

Allotments are available for any resident of Adur over the age of 18. There are waiting lists for all of our sites, and you must be an Adur resident to be added to the list. The waiting time for a plot can be up to five years depending on the site.  However, as of 01/08/2016, many of our sites do have vacancies or very short waiting times.

Please note that due to the length of our waiting lists, as from 25/02/2009 all applications will be limited to one site only.
