I was shocked yesterday to see workmen and a machine clearing some of the Victoria st/Lordens hill allotments. I did make an inspection of the allotment area with senior officials of Rotherham council and local Dinnington town councillors only two weeks ago. I don’t know whether this action has come from enforcement orders sent out following the meeting or has been driven by other events?
I am told that the Community group is ready to clear the middle two allotments. But most of the work was going ahead on the first allotment, which has also been secured, I am not sure what the intentions are on the first allotments? The middle two allotments are being turned into a community allotment.
You can find pictures and videos of the allotments prior to the work here. I will keep you posted as the site develops.
All the best
