NB: You can only apply for allotments in Worthing if you are a resident of Worthing - if you live outside the boundary line (e.g. Lancing or Sompting) then you cannot apply and should see the council web site for the Adur area. Findon Valley is inside the boundary, Findon is not (contact your parish council). Ferring comes under Arun council.

There are eight sites in Worthing, located here:

Humber Avenue is still managed by the local council so you should contact them.

All other sites are managed by WAM so you can email the membership secretary to join the waiting list, or fill in and post this form. Here is a Word version or, for ipad user, a Pages version.

The length of the list will vary by site and smaller sites wil obviously have fewer vacancies per year. You can, if you wish, choose one large site and one small site nearest to your home and apply for both. West Tarring and Chesswood are much larger than all the others.

NB: Our allotments are measured in rods. A rod is an ancient measure and actually a square rod, or 16.5 ft x 16.5 ft ( = 272.25 square ft). The most common size is five rods, equivalent to roughly 150 square yards or 125 square metres. Our present rates are £8 per rod so a standard five rod plot is £40 per year. We have some smaller and some larger plots and a few mini-plots for beginners. Allotment sizes include half of any surrounding paths. If you are over 65 years of age you will receive a 30% discount.

Accessible plots

We have a very limited number of accessible plots to cater for physical disablities. If you think you qualify you will need this form to go on the 'acessible' list. Here it is in Word.

While you are waiting....

Worthing Borough Council’s Peter Whish, the Parks Community Engagement Manager, can offer you or your club or social group the use of flower beds, shrub beds, grassed areas -  whatever size or kind you want to get involved with. If you want Worthing to look more interesting then get stuck in and plant it pretty. There is no charge for the use or the space so contact (01273 263166 or 07860594132) and he will discuss it with you.
