Want an allotment? There is a seven-year wait at some of Shaftesbury Town Council’s existing sites.
Shaftesbury’s new allotments should be open for tenants later this year. The Town Council first approved plans for the plots on the south side of the A30, opposite Allen Road, in February 2019.
On Tuesday evening, councillors appointed a local contractor for the £80,000 project to prepare the allotments, car park and footpath.
