“In January 2015 the 27 remaining plot-holders learned that the council was making a new bid to build on the site. (AG, 7 February).

“I naively presumed that allotments were privy to some historic law, forbidding development on them.”

Gardeners at Farm Terrace put in a Freedom of Information Act request and learned that, between 2007 and 2013, the Government only turned down four applications out of 132 to close allotment sites.”
