Find allotments in Wolverhampton.

Sites

There are 1,100 plots for rent on 31 sites located around Wolverhampton.  

We encourage the self management of all allotment sites. Nine allotment sites are self managed by allotment holders with a site committee who set rental costs. 

We aim to retain all well used allotment sites and to improve all other sites.

Easily accessible allotments

Thanks to funding from All Saints and Blakenhall Community Development (ABCD), eight new plots with raised beds have been built at the allotments on Howell Road, off Pond Lane, Blakenhall.

The plots are Wolverhampton's first purpose-built and specially designed for gardeners with a disability.  Other facilities include a disabled toilet and shelter.

Anyone with a disability or limited mobility who is interested, please email customer.services@wolverhampton.gov.uk
