DEV5 - Community food growing and allotments

This policy is currently going through formal consultation. Click here to go to comment.

The LPAs will support and encourage local food growing by seeking provision of new allotments and/or community food growing sites where there is a deficiency of provision, having regard to the overall demand for and supply for such facilities in the locality and the provisions of Policy SPT2.

Development of existing allotment and community food growing sites will only be permitted where there is an overriding sustainable development justification for the proposal, with re-provision of the lost facilities in a location appropriate to the demand.
