I’ve just seen this post “Allotment Threat – Act Now!” on the Allotment.org website and was a little taken aback that this issue hasn’t generated more publicity. It seems that the government is removing the statutory duty to provide a sufficient number of allotments for people in the area who want one. This could have the effect of putting all allotments under threat which is clearly a potential issue for many people.
I don’t want to raise any political issues but would encourage you to read the ‘Review of statutory duties placed on local government‘ and make your own mind up. The informal consultation exercise will close on 25 April 2011 so time it tight.
