Links to the latest statistics about allotments are listed below. Allotments are managed by Local Authorities, hundreds of large borough councils and thousands of town and parish councils along with private trusts and other organisations; this makes accurate statistics very difficult to collate. Despite that obstacle, in partnership with Transition West Kirby, every two years we do produce a waiting list survey, which gives an overview of the available information. Click here to read about the benefits of allotment gardening
