Allotment Sites

t d reynolds made this Freedom of Information request to Swindon Borough Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Swindon Borough Council,
Can you tell me why the waiting lists for the allotment sites have been closed and when was this decision taken?
In 2008, there were a total of 841 on the waiting list, we are now told this number has fallen to 300, and there is nobody from Gorsehill on the list, is this true?
It is reported that in Omdurman Street alone, there are 11 on the waiting list, is this also true?
Is it possible to get a copy of the waiting list addresses (even by just post code numbers)
How many sites have the council actually closed since 2006?.

Yours faithfully,
T D Reynolds
