Warndon Parish Council has had it's own allotments site since 2013. The site is located at the Mabbs Orchard Estate and is accessed through Mabbs Close. The original site contained 14 full size plots although the vast majority of these are let as HALF PLOTS. After having a very large waiting list the Council decided to extend the original site by putting a bridge over the large drainage gulley and utilising part of the field to the north of the original site. This area has been fenced off and was opened in April 2018.
We currently have 26 Full Size plots which are mostly let as half plots. The Council has recently agreed to let Quarter Plots as well as Half Plots to encourage people who can't manage larger plots to get involved.
There is a current Waiting List but if you fancy the challenge get in touch. If you should require any further information please contact us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Speed Detection Machine
The Council has a speed detection machine (VAS) which is moved around the various feeder roads each month.
This machine has helped reduce average speeds considerably although there is still much to be done. The Council recently agreed to purchase a further machine which is solar panel driven and will be in position at the A4440 end of Plantation Drive along with the new Villages Gateways once the location has been approved by the County Council'
Unfortunately the project has been delayed due to plans by the County Council to install a footpath on one side of the road and a pedway on the other. The positioning of the gates and speed machine are therefore in question until the County Council finalise their plans.
It now looks as if this will be delayed until 2020.
