8.8 Allotments

An emerging new form of land use has been the development of allotments.  Allotment gardens allow a number of people to cultivate their own vegetables in individual plots/land parcels on lands owned by another private individual or body.  The individual plot/parcel can vary in size and often the plots include a shed for tools and shelter.  Allotments can have a number of benefits including the promotion of healthy lifestyles, biodiversity and providing a cheaper, local and sustainable source of food. The Council will support and facilitate the development of allotments within the county.
