Allotments at rear of Bloomfield Drive(2)

The Council is calling them Corston View to avoid confusion with Bloomfield Road allotments.

We would dearly like to get these works done late 2007 / early 2008 so that we can get the site into use spring 2008. There is currently a waiting list of 25 people which will more than full the site up.2008 is the 100 year anniversary of the first municipal allotments in Bath (at Larkhall) as well as the 100 anniversary of the Allotment Act that made provision a statutory duty. The Council is hoping that the reopening of this site will add to the celebrations throughout the year.

The only barrier is we need to find £12377.4 to get the works done. One possible option is to use the money that came from the development at the Clark's site.
