Parish Council trials Quarter sized Allotment Plots

Parish Council trials Quarter sized Allotment Plots

The Parish Council's Estates & Recreation Committee decided to pilot a 12-month trial of offering quarter sized allotment plots for £10 per year and that these would be on the Greengate Lane site where there is an opportunity of creating six quarter plots all together.

The committee felt that this would not only benefit those who are new to allotment gardening and would give them an idea of whether they would be able to manage a larger half plot or even a full plot, but they also thought it would be an option for existing tenants struggling to maintain the plot they have and be able to downsize rather than give up completely.

If the trial proves successful it will be rolled out to the Meadow Lane site and Worcester Avenue site.

There are currently vacant plots on all three sites, but if the quarter plots are of more interest to you please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Council office staff.

It is anticipated that the first quarter plots will be available from February 2019, but if you want to reserve one now, please contact us and we will place you on the waiting list and be in touch as soon as they are ready.
