If you don't have a garden of your own, renting an allotment gives you the chance to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables. The City of Edinburgh Council manages 1233 allotment plots, spread over 21 sites across the city.
Renting an allotment
All sites currently have a waiting list. Estimated waiting times are listed next to each site in our Allotments directory.
Full plots (10m x 20m) and half plots (5m x 10m) can be found on all sites. Subsidized plots are available to those people with concessions (pensions and benefits). Allotments can be hired by individuals or groups.
The annual rents from 2013 are:
- Full plot: £90 (£45 with concession)
- Half plot: £45 (£20 with concession)
Apply for an allotment using the allotment application form, which should be sent to the Allotment Officer.
We are keen to increase the number of allotment sites in Edinburgh. If you are a private landowner interested in developing allotments on your land we are happy to support you with advice and administration. Please get in touch with our Allotment Officer for further information.
