News from the allotment society that they have a draft lease from Highland Council and it is anticipated that work will start on transforming the site into allotments within the next two months. It is anticipated that at least 15 people on the waiting list of 36 will be able to be given space on the site. Contracts for fencing work and repair of the drive and car park area have also been finalised.
Tonight the allotment society also discussed their objection to the Sandown Planning application by Deveron for 550 homes. Whatever the outcome of the inquiry their preference is to see new allotments back to back with the existing ones that line the field from Sandown Farm Lane to the properties on Pig Street.
