BEARSTED ALLOTMENTS: Parish council to discuss land scheme tomorrow night

Monday 12th July 2021

A CONTROVERSIAL land acquisition by Bearsted Parish Council (BPC) is to come up for discussion tomorrow night. 
A full council meeting is scheduled for 7.45pm (July 13) at the KGV Memorial Hall in Manor Rise.
Item seven on the agenda is titled "Update on Project A (Small Holdings and Allotments 1908 s26).
It refers to land acquired by BPC and proposals to move a greater number of allotments elsewhere but increase the number of the nearby tennis club's courts by two while also expanding the car park by the church.
Allotment holders were upset they were not consulted before the scheme was formalised and fear they may be moved to smaller plots on their new site. BPC insists no decision has yet been made.
