Allotment waiting list
The majority of allotment sites are full with waiting lists, however some sites currently have vacant plots or a very short waiting list.
London Borough of Bexley waiting list policy is to allocate plots in the following order:
- Borough residents who do not currently have an allotment plot
- Borough residents who have half a plot but would like an additional plot
- Out of borough residents who do not have a plot
- Out of borough residents who want a second half plot
- Borough residents who already have two half plot and want a third half plot
- Out of borough residents who already have two half plots and want a third half plot
