Allotment gardening is a popular pastime in Eastbourne with the number of tenants increasing in recent years. The Allotments and Gardens Society have their own constitution and manage most of the day to day workings of the sites including the tenancy agreements.

During 2009, in liaison with the Allotments and Gardens Society we carried out a detailed review of allotment provision in the borough. The review looked at historic under-provision and at how future demand might be accommodated. The main outcome of the review has been the creation of additional capacity at two allotment sites. This has helped reduce the waiting list and the time it takes new applicants to have plots allocated.
