Allotment Provision in Rufforth


At the meeting of the Executive of City of York Council on March18th, proposals for the provision of the new allotments in Rufforth were agreed.

CYC is providing the site in the field bordered by the cycle path and the entrance to Harewood Whin and will procure the works to prepare the site. This will be leased to the Parish Council who will be responsible for making arrangements with the Allotment Holders Association.

Chairman of the Parish Council, Peter Rollings spoke at the meeting and stressed the urgency of the project; a timetable for completion by the end of 2021 was agreed.

The result will be an improved allotment site with good access, both vehicular and pedestrian. There may be the availability of some allotments once the project is complete and information will be provided on the Parish Council website.
