Long Sutton Parish Council owns an amount of land which is currently let as allotments or under Farm Business Tenancies to local Parishioners. A review of the letting of this land is being carried out. All of this land however is currently consolidated into fields and farmed as such.
The Council has an obligation to find out what the requirement is within the Parish for allotments and by this it is meant the traditional allotment of 10 rods (about 250 sq. metres, 300 sq. yards, 0.06 acre). If there is sufficient demand then the Council is required to provide such a facility.
Those parishioners who are would wish to cultivate an allotment should register their interest with the Parish Clerk, Mrs Paula Allen, in order that the Parish Council may discover the demand for allotments.
