Holmes Chapel allotments

We the undersigned petition the council to Provide an allotment site in the parish of Holmes Chapel.

We are a group of over 50 residents who would like to acquire an allotment. We represent over 170 residents including the local U3A and the scout group.

There is only one council allotment site within an 8 mile radius of Holmes Chapel.

Allotments provide a sustainable use of land close to where people live. Consequently plot holders help reduce their own carbon emissions by avoiding excessive transportation and processing of food, and reducing personal travel. They also provide an educational resource for our children and local schools and community groups to utilise.

The council is required to take this representation into account under section 23(2) of the Small Holdings and Allotments Act 1908.

This ePetition ran from 14/02/2011 to 13/04/2011 and has now finished.

37 people signed this ePetition.
