Dear Margaret,

There has been no change since I replied to your similar request submitted
on 3 January 2010. I therefore write to advise you as follows:-

There are 6 allotment sites in West Bridgford owned by Rushcliffe Borough
Council. These are leased to West Bridgford Allotment Holders and they
have operational responsibility. Rushcliffe Borough Council has no
involvement. Similarly, Rushcliffe BC owns 4 other allotment sites in
Cotgrave, Aslockton, Bingham and Bunny. Each are leased to and managed by
the town or parish councils and Rushcliffe CB has no operational
responsibilities.

Kind Regards

Clare Asti
