Applying for an allotment

We have 515 plots in 8 allotment sites across Poole.

In order to apply for an allotment, you will need to join the waiting list.

When joining the waiting list for an allotment you can select up to two sites as your first and second choices.

We will contact you when your name is at the top of the relevant waiting list. 

Currently there is a 2 to 9 year waiting list, depending on the allotment site.

Join the waiting list

Allotment agreement

If we offer you an allotment, you have ten working days to accept the plot. If you don't respond to this offer, we will remove you from the waiting list.

If you accept the offer of an allotment to rent you’ll get an allotment agreement, a legally binding contract in which you’re agreeing to:

  • take on a yearly tenancy to look after your plot and allotment site
  • follow the terms and conditions in the agreement or you may be evicted and your plot let to another tenant

You will need to come to our New Fields site with proof of residency and to sign and pay for the agreement.
