It is a plot of land that is owned.  Its purpose is as yet unrealized and
it is as yet unused.  It
might end up with a house on it.  Depends what the owner intends to do with
it and what zoning

Allotment plots ARE in use, as gardens/agriculture.  An allotment plot is
for people who want to
be able to do some gardening but their residential property does not have a
garden.  Their plot
is defined (growing plants).  They are in use (most of them).  They are not
to be built on (although
the terms may permit a small garden shed).  They are not for any purpose
other than gardening.
