The town which I live in has no allotments, but I discovered it once did on an old OS map. What is the law on allotments?

Hi there. Welcome to the forums.  :D

There is a huge amount of laws on allotments.  The old allotments which have not gone may or may not have been covered by the law.

There are 3 categories of allotments

Statutory Allotments - covered by allotment law and usually owned by councils

Temporary allotments - pieces of land used as temporary allotments until used for another purpose e.g. building; often owned by councils. Not covered by allotment law.

Private allotments - owned and run by people other than councils. Not covered by allotment law.

John has some information here:

Good luck finding a site near you  :)

Some beside the B6164 near North Deighton,-1.3900837,3a,90y,90.64t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s59ExyW0YlyhN9_g2c3ZWcA!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

Unless I got completely lost within Google Maps (It has been known!) :lol: :lol:
