Apply for an allotment
Applications are currently suspended due to high numbers of people on the waiting list.
Use this form to add your name to an allotment waiting list. Our allotments are available to residents of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames only (18+ years).
Before you start
Please ensure you have read and considered the following before you apply.
The waiting list shows the number of plots on each site, the number of new plot holders starting over the past three years, the date of application for the next person to be contacted when a plot is available, and the total number of applicants waiting for each site. This list is updated twice a year.
You may add your name to the waiting list for up to three sites that you are interested in. We will contact you when your name is near the top of the list.
A well maintained plot of 5 rods or 126 square metres will take approximately six hours care each week, more in some months, less in others.
Consider the site
Visit your preferred site to chat to a committee member and other plot holders. Get a feel for the place. Consider your travelling time, ease of access and carriage of any equipment or supplies.
Terms and conditions
All plot holders must adhere to the terms and conditions to ensure the appropriate use of each site, and the enduring harmony with fellow plot holders and surrounding neighbours.
