Dear Alana Diffey,

Thank you for your response to my request for information on allotments.

Please could I confirm your answer to Q3 asking about "new allotment sites on council land". Your response is that there is one new allotment site (Sterling Way) on council land but the council has no record of what area of its land is involved?

Many thanks,

Margaret Campbell

Dear Sir / Madam,

 

Following on from your email of 11^th March 2013 in which you queried our
response to question 3 regarding new allotment sites, I can advise that
there were no new sites brought into use in 2011.  Stirling Way was not a
new site, but was brought back into use in 2009/10. The size of the site
is 0.768 hectares or 26 full size plots.

 

We apologise for any confusion caused.
