The only council-owned allotments are at Deanburn in Penicuik. There is a container for tool storage, and the site is fenced and locked.
There is a waiting list of 1 to 5 years.
If you are unemployed, concessions are available.

Allotment and food growing strategy
The Community Empowerment Scotland Act 2015 required us to produce an allotment and food growing strategy. The strategy identifies new housing developments where allotments could be located. It also identifies potential sites for local community growing projects.
