Dear Mr Greenwood

 

Information on allotments within Angus Council is available from the
Council's website:
 [1]https://www.angus.gov.uk/leisure_sport_a...

 

The website does need to be reviewed and I have attached a spreadsheet
identifying the allotment sites which are contained in our database as
currently owned by the Council.  Please note that Hillend Road, Arbroath
and Barry Road, Monifieth are not listed as Council owned sites on our
database although they appear under Council allotments on the website.

 

Allotments either leased out to associations or are operated by Angus
Council are contained on the attached spreadsheet.  The only council
operated allotment is at Rutland Crescent, Montrose doesn't have any
vacant plots.  The waiting list is closed for new applicant however there
are currently 6 people on the list although we don't hold data on waiting
times for plots.

 

As the other allotments are not operated by the Council for further
information please contact the operators as detailed on the Council
website.

 

In compiling responses to information requests we invariably use
information which is routinely published on the Council’s website or
through its Publication Scheme.  If you require further information please
first check that the information you want is not routinely published as
any such information is exempt from release in terms of Section 25 of the
Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 or Regulation 6(1)(b) of the
Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

 

I hope that this information is of some help to you. Please note that the
