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.

Allotments are very popular and we do have waiting lists for all our sites and you may find a longer wait at some sites than others. You may select to go on the waiting list for one or two sites that you would prefer when you complete your application. You will however only be able to take out a tenancy at a single site.
