Boroughbridge Allotment Society
Why Boroughbridge Needed Allotments
Enquiries were made regarding the availability of allotments locally:
All local sites had long waiting lists. People from Boroughbridge were known to occupy allotments in Ripon.
A public meeting held in Boroughbridge in December 2009 identified 27 people requesting allotments, and that number has increased steadily by people contacting us via this website or via the Town Council. The Society also had a stall at a local event that produced positive feedback regarding the creation of local allotments.
The society consulted the Allotments Regeneration Initiative and they advised that in their experience those numbers would increase substantially once the allotments become available. This was indeed the case. Once the first phase of allotments were released, the waiting list began to grow, and very quickly it became clear that further allotments were needed in order to satisfy demand.

The allotments aimed to provide a facility, open to all, helping to foster a community spirit and giving an opportunity to many that is currently unavailable.
