Have Your Say - Allotments

Sat 05 Mar 2022 11:04

The Parish Council has been asked to consider providing allotments for residents of the Parish.

There are two possibilities - individual allotments of about 250m² each or a larger community allotment run on a volunteer basis.

It is envisaged that the allotments would be located within the village but before we start work on this matter, we need to understand the level of interest within the Parish.

We think individual allotments would cost somewhere in the region of £50 to £70 per annum, but this has to be finalised if the project goes ahead.

To register an interest, please email the Parish Clerk.

The closing date will be 30th April 2022.
