Lambeth has a number of allotment sites of various sizes in different parts of the borough. Some allotment sites are council owned and managed, but the majority are privately owned or managed by an independent association.

1. Council owned allotments
Lorn Road Allotments
Lorn Road Allotments is a small set of 29 allotments. There is an active plotholder community on site and this combined with its small size means that the waiting list is currently closed. Priority is normally given to applicants who live in the northern or central areas of Lambeth.
Chesterman-Robinson Allotments is a set of allotments located between Bridgewood, Grayscroft and Helmsdale Roads in Streatham Vale, named in memory of two local allotment activists Paul Chesterman and Fred Robinson.
With only 26 plots on site the waiting list is currently closed but we may reopen this at a later date. Priority is normally given to applicants who live in the Streatham and Streatham Vale areas of Lambeth.
The allotments were restored during 2010 with funding provided through the council’s Ward Priority Programme. A new allotment association is in the process of being set up to help maintain the site.

2. Privately owned allotments
There are a number of working allotment sites in Lambeth which are privately owned and managed. These sites manage their own application procedures over which Lambeth Council has no powers of intervention.
Just as with council owned sites, waiting lists for a private allotment site may also be closed due to demand, so please check with them first before applying.
