GOVERNMENT PAVES THE WAY FOR ALLOTMENTS SELL-OFF

In a move that promises to be as unpopular as its ham-fisted attempt to sell-off the nation’s forests, the Government has announced plans to release Councils from their obligation to provide allotments for local people. As well as restricting the provision of new allotments, campaigners fear that the move will lead to cash-strapped Councils selling off their allotment land for development. At a time when the Government is supposed to be trying to get people to live more active, healthy lifestyles this seems to be a particularly brainless move, especially from a Government that claims to be the ‘greenest in history.’ A sizeable group of people in Cotford who have been capaigning for allotments for some years are likely to be left disappointed by this legislation. Another reason not to vote LibDem or Conservative in the forthcoming elections………
