There are five allotment garden sites in Gainsborough managed by the Town Council.

Each has a Site Secretary who helps to manage the running of that particular site on behalf of both the plot holders and the Town Council.

If you would like to enquire about obtaining an allotment please contact the Gainsborough Town Council Office in the first instance.

When there is no availability, the Council will manage a waiting list. The waiting list will always put the following people first:

· Gainsborough residents before non-residents;

· People who do not already have an allotment before those who have;

· Individuals before organisations and community groups (who may be offered a letting agreement slightly different to those for individuals).
