Out of the blue a report is going to Edinburgh councillors, according to an Evening News article (link below), that will recommend the purchase of fields on the boundary of the city to provide sufficient allotments to provide one for each person on the waiting list.
Welcome though this initiative is, these plots are not necessarily going to suit everyone as they will be a long distance from where the majority of the population live. And what are the implications for the agreed strategy of providing sites within the city? There are many questions that this proposal will give rise to. Any comments from the allotment community would be appreciated. Go to "Contact".
