Cardiff Council is responsible for 28 allotment sites with over 2,500 tenanted plots.


Allotments are very popular but waiting lists vary from site to site.  Occasionally some sites may have vacant plots or short waiting lists but the situation varies throughout the growing season each year.  Where the number of people on a waiting list is more than 50% of the available plots at the site, the waiting list is closed.  The link below has details for each site.

Offer of a plot


When there are vacant plots, the Site Representative will get in touch and invite you to visit the site.  If you decide to take on a plot you will need to sign a tenancy agreement form.  The Site Representative will provide you with a site gate key.  You will need to pay a refundable deposit between £10 and £20 and we will send you a bill for the plot.  The allotment year starts on 2  February and rent is payable for the full year.  If you take on the plot between 1 December and 1 February the following year a pro rata amount is payable.


If you decide not to take on a plot, or if the Site Representative is unable to contact you, your details will be removed from the waiting list.


If you are new to allotment gardening or would like information about allotment gardening, we have prepared a handy guide (2.7Mb PDF) Link opens in a new window giving a summary of the rules in the tenancy agreement and helpful tips on planting and managing your plot.
