Waiting list policy
We currently have 50 people waiting for a plot at Dorset Road Allotments. This is made up of people who do not currently have an allotment plot on our site as well as existing plotholders looking for an additional plot.
We only offer people who are new to Dorset Road half or quarter plots because a full 250sqm plot can be too much to those new to allotmenting.
However those who do stick with it and work their plot sometimes apply for an additional plot adjacent to or near their existing plot. These existing plotholders sometimes sit at the top of the waiting list for many months before a plot they want becomes available.
Don’t be surprised if you get an email or phone call when you are 5th or 6th on the list. This means there are either existing plotholders waiting at the top of the list for neighbouring plot or we have more than one plot to rent.
We sometimes invite a couple of people on the waiting list to visit the site and view available plots at the same time, in these circumstances we have a strict policy of giving the person highest on the list first choice of plots.
We will try and contact you three times to offer you a plot. If we do not hear from you after the third attempt we will remove you from the waiting list. If you change your mind and no longer want a plot at Dorset Road Allotments please let us know.
