Gamesley Allotments – update 3 : If you’ve passed by the allotments site, you may have noticed that the workers have mainly left site following the end of the bulk of construction works.
All that remains now are some further works to the finish the footpaths and parking area, along with the works to plant the hedge along the front of the site.
If you’re local to the site, you will shortly see notices for a planning application (HPK/2016/0081), however it’s not for a full planning application, it’s just to amend the existing planning approval for the allotments.
Specifically, it’s to amend the maximum size for green houses / poly tunnels from 1.8 by 1.8 by 1.8 to 1.8 by 2.4 by 1.8, the reason for this is that following advice from GAFA, it very unusual / odd and quite difficult to buy square green houses, and by amending the measurements it will allow for plots holders to more easily have a greenhouse on their plot.
As before if you’re interested in been involved or have any concerns around the planning application, please get in touch
