Developers working nearby say they will make the sites accessible to the community at the beginning of March
Gardeners awaiting allotments in Cranbrook can start planning for the horticultural year ahead, as the plots look set to be available at the beginning of March.
The Crannaford and Southbrook allotment sites, near the education campus, are ready for cultivation, and the only issue now is gaining access to them.
Town councillor Ray Bloxham said; “The awkward bit is getting to the allotments, because there’s quite a lot of construction work going on where they are.
“But we’ve got a commitment from the developers to have that cleared and make the allotments accessible to the community, ready for the start of the garden planting season. We’re looking at the beginning of March to have people on the ground there.”
