On the estate where I live new group has been set up to improve the area. A rubbish pick up produced 73 black bags and 2 shopping trollies. At the next meeting I would like to suggest a community allotment but want to go armed with facts. Please help

Allotment

Hi I did read somewhere if your town or village has no allotments you have to get 5 people together and your local council has to provide one. If there are already some in the town then by law they dont. On that account you would be better of finding a suitable site and getting as many people together and writing in bulk to the council, you never know with persistance you may get a result.

Good Luck!!!
