ALLOTMENTS will be developed on part of a large piece of land at the junction of Battishorne Way and Honiton Bottom Road.Honiton Town Council's policy committee approved the scheme at a meeting on Monday, with councillors resigned to the fact that there was no other available land for allotments and that only half-plots will be offered to gardeners.Councillors felt the issue had dragged on long enough. They acknowledged a 400-signature petition against the location, but felt many objectors may not have been aware that only part of the site will be used. A nature reserve will be developed nearby. The council has £10,000 ear-marked for the scheme in reserves.
