Allotments – Latest news

The 2021 sale of the Abingworth Phase 3 housing scheme transferred responsibility for delivering the long-awaited Allotments area to new house-builders Bellway Homes. and it has been agreed to amend the timing of the delivery of the allotments to mid-way through the phase 3 construction period.  Taking into account the anticipated pace of house-building, we now expect this to mean that the allotments will be delivered by mid-2023.

The PC has also now agreed the detailed design of the allotments scheme, which ranges from the basic number and types/sizes of plots to features such as access, water availability, drainage/levels and specification of soil preparation.  We are pleased to report success in increasing the number of plots to be delivered (from 39 to 55 in total).

See below for a broad overview of Bellway’s proposal, which remains in the far southern area of the Abingworth development, as always expected.  At the present time, we continue to have space available in the initial allocation of plots –  please contact the clerk if you are interested and wish to be added to the list.
