I was recently asked about the availability of allotments. There are a lot of people in my Ward with their names on a waiting list for a popular allotment site. I asked the Council what plans they had to give any further land over to allotments and they do have a number of new sites planned. One of these new sites is to be created at High Ash Drive in Alwoodley and will have 16 half size plots. This will be available to those on the current waiting lists. Unfortunately all the other sites in this area have waiting lists too. I am advised if people are prepared to travel then there are other sites with no waiting lists and available plots.
