Allotment Committee

Allotment Committee

The Prestbury Parish Council allotments are located on Blacksmith’s Lane.

The Allotment Committee handles running the allotments on behalf of the Parish Council. There are five Parish Councillor members, two Allotment Representative members, the Parish Clerk and the Parish Council’s Groundsman attends in an advisory capacity.

Allotment Representatives are tenants who act as liaison between all the other tenants and the Parish Council.

There are 155 allotment plots. Unlike a lot of allotment sites the Prestbury plots are not all rectangular and they vary in size. For renting they are classed as Half and Full – however there are “big halfs” and “small fulls”, and some have interesting shapes. See plot-map
