The new allotments at Studley Lane are now open for business. Plots have been laid out and those on the waiting list have been sent tenancy agreements so they can start preparations ready for the new growing year. The allotments are leased from the landowners by the Parish Council, who have made a grant available to cover the cost of setting up the allotments, including provision of a water supply. This has yet to be connected to the site, but the delay is not expected to affect use of the allotments at this time of year!
The plot holders are forming an allotment group to manage the allotments and plan further developments. There are two sizes of allotments: 60 and 120 square metres, for which the annual rents are £30 and £40 respectively. The annual rents will be held by the allotment group to help fund maintenance and development of the site as the Parish Council have agreed to pay the annual lease costs.
