Mercel Avenue Allotment Site

The Council has one allotment site at Mercel Avenue, containing thirty allotment gardens. The area of land comprises approximately two acres and is leased from a local landowner. The lease expires in 2021. The Council has, however, requested the landowner to sell it the freehold of this land and a further parcel of adjoining land for allotments to accommodate those persons on the Council’s allotment waiting list. It is still awaiting a response to this request. 

All tenants have to comply with Tenancy Conditions. The current annual rent payable is £23.00 with effect from 29th September 2017.  See below for the number of people on the current waiting list with names.
