What are people allowed to grow?
You can grow fruit, vegetables, plants and flowers.
Is there a waiting list for allotments?
Please bear in mind that due to popular demand, some sites have no allotments available. If this is the case you can ask to be added to the waiting list and we will contact you when a plot becomes available.
Currently there are vacant plots at our Westcliff site on Bodmin Road where there is no waiting list. Therefore it is possible you could rent a plot straight away after making your application.
What happens if I am accepted?
Once you have been allocated a plot you will need to sign a tenancy agreement before you will be given possession of the plot.
If you want to add a shed or glasshouse you must ask permission in writing; either by email or post. Design sheets are available for this purpose, which are enclosed with the tenancy agreement.
How can I apply for an allotment outside of Scunthorpe?
