Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Westminster City Council should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

David Greenwood

Dear Westminster City Council,

As of June 2018, please could you share a:

1. List of allotment sites the council owns, and for each site:
1.1. Is the site 1) council managed, 2) community managed, or 3) managed by a commercial third-party?
1.2. What is the address of the site?
1.3. What is the total size of the site (please include the unit of measurement. E.g.. hectares, acres, etc.)?
1.4. What is the total number of plots on site?
1.5.1 Are plot rents 1) charged per individual plot (where plot fixed), or 2) by size where plot size optional/variable? Please indicate the measurement unit for plots for both scenarios (e.g.. hectares, acres, etc.).
1.5.2 What is the rental cost of 1) individual plots, or 2) cost by plot unit (e.g., £2 per sq meter) in Pounds Sterling? (please state ranges of rents if variable)
1.6 How many vacant plots?
1.7.1 Does a waiting list exist for plots on site?
1.7.2 If yes; what is the total number of people on the waiting list?
1.7.3 If yes; is the waiting list open for new applications?
1.7.4 If yes; what is the approximate waiting time for a plot?
