Work has started on the land in Kirkton Campus leased by Killandean Allotments Association from West Lothian Council. It is envisaged that plots will be ready for renting by mid August. This will be the first new allotment site opened in Livingston for 30 years. The project will create 35 allotment plots and a community garden, thereby more than doubling the number of allotment plots available in Livingston.
The cost of initial site investigations and planning were covered by West Lothian council. The actual creation of the allotment site including fencing, paths, sheds, community facilities, rainwater harvesting equipment and composting facilities has been made possible by a £100,000 grant from the Climate Challenge Fund
The Scottish Allotments and Gardens Society greatly welcomes the opening of the new site at Killingdon and the opportunities this will give to Livingston residents to grow their own fruit and vegetables. We wish them every success and hope that it will encourage other residents in West Lothian to seek to have an allotment and ‘grow their own’.
