Allotments

Recent years have seen a big increase in the number of people wanting to grow their own produce and Honiton is no exception. The Town Council has a waiting list for allotments and has leased land at Battishorne Way to satisfy demand for plots. The contract to build the allotment plots has been awarded and funding provided by a development agreement via EDDC, which sees £68k recently agreed to fund the project. There is a Council Working Group leading the project.

For further information, or to join the waiting list, please contact the Deputy Town Clerk, Honiton Town Council, Council Offices, The Beehive, Dowell Street, Honiton, EX14 1LZ. Telephone 01404 42957 or by email to deputyclerk@honiton.gov.uk

Despite the cold and wet weather, the new plot holders at the Battishorne Way Allotments have clearly been hard at work, as seen by these photographs.  The Town Council is delighted to see the allotments being used and hope that the plot holders will soon be enjoying the fruits of their labour.
