The Greenlink allotment project aims to create allotments on the Greenlink, off Braidhurst Street in Motherwell. (The Greenlink is a 7 mile cycle track connecting Motherwell Town Centre to Strathclyde Park). The allotment project committee have had two pieces of really good news recently. North Lanarkshire Council has agreed a lease for the land that they want, and they have been awarded a grant of £10,000 by the Big Lottery Fund to produce a business plan.
The plans for the site include 39 individual plots, of which 9 are earmarked for community use. They also propose a wildlife garden, a play space for children and a community hut. Click here to learn more about the allotment project, or any other aspect of the Greenlink project.
