Subject: Allotments on Fernwood?

 

I have heard on the grapevine there may be allotments on Fernwood.

If so, I am presently on the Balderton waiting list as I believed these to be the closest to Fernwood. I have been on the list for at least a year maybe two. If there were to be any allotments available, I would love to be able to have access to a plot as I have been waiting for such a long time. Please let me know if this is true. Many thanks.

Kind Regards,
Marie Edwards

Hi Marie

Thanks for getting in touch.

The Council has been approached regarding the possibility of allotments which we are looking in to. I will be in touch and ensure a post is made in the news section of the website when I hve some more news for you.

Kind regards

Hi
At yesterdays meeting with DWH I am afraid they refused to provide land for allotments. They put a number of objections to the idea. We will continue to raise the matter at appropriate times in the future but I dont think we will be able to persuade them to change their minds at the moment.

Please be assured that the best efforts of Council are being applied to this topic, but if the land owners are not willing to release a plot we can’t go ahead. It has been officially raised with District and with DWH but please don’t hold your breath for a favourable response. We will keep pushing.
