Allotments in Edinburgh

Allotment strategy

In March 2017 the City of Edinburgh Council approved the third Allotment strategy, cultivating communities - A growing success.

This strategy was written following consultation with the public and allotment plot holders in the Autumn of 2016 and establishes a ten year plan for allotment development in Edinburgh.

Its core objectives are to

  • ensure adequate provision of allotments
  • introduce a robust management system
  • improve the customer experience
  • adopt the revised allotment regulations.
