Dear Newcastle upon Tyne City Council,
The Council's allotment strategy (URL below) refers to 62 allotment sites - this is as part of target 3, which states:
The City Council will undertake to protect Newcastle’s existing 62 allotment sites. This will
necessitate negotiation with the Freemen of an embargo upon loss of further sites, the re-provision of allotments at Denton Bank and significant progress towards the re-designation of sites from temporary to statutory status.
The relevant URL is provided below.
I would like to know:
- if the former Nuns Moor allotment site is included within those 62 sites
- what negotiations have taken place with the Freemen and if these were successful
- if any sites were redesignated from temporary to statutory status.
Please see the extract from the Freedom of Information Act below showing the requirement to supply us with a full name.

Any variation of the requester’s title or first name combined with their surname (e.g. Mr Smith or John Smith) will be sufficient to meet this requirement. However, a first name or surname provided in isolation, or a set of initials, will not”.
