Allotments

How to get an allotment

We own a range of allotment sites across the district, all of which are self-managed by their own allotment associations. These allotments offer over 600 cultivated plots in total. There are also a number of private and parish council owned allotment sites in the Lancaster district with approximately 125 plots in total.

Each allotment association can provide information on rental costs, length of waiting list and a wide variety of other information you may wish to know about their site.
