Allotment Strategy

To approve the adoption and implementation of the Parks and Countryside Wirral Allotments Partnership Strategy and Improvement Plans 2015-2020 following public consultation.


The overall objective of Wirral Allotments Partnership Strategy is to help create and maintain a high standard of allotment provision for the benefit of Wirral residents by improving the infrastructure, facilities, security and quality of allotment sites and ensuring optimum use is made of existing allotment provision through reducing the number of vacant and ‘unusable’ plots. This will be achieved by effective partnership working between the Council’s Parks, Allotments and Countryside Team, allotment site secretaries, allotment site societies and individual plot holders, ensuring all sites are welcoming and accessible to all.


Through this strategy, the Parks, Allotments and Countryside team intends to provide clarity to all parties involved with allotments including Wirral’s allotment site secretaries, current and prospective plot holders, neighbours to allotment sites, Councillors and Council officers.
