Scottish Executive takes hands off approach to allotments

I wrote a post on Feb 2 regarding a response by Tom McCabe to a question on allotments tabled by Susan Deacon. Since then a member of the SAGS committee has been carrying on a correspondence with Tom McCabe’s office, which has been collected together and which you can see by clicking here. The correspondence appears to confirm that the Executive believe that because allotments are a local matter, they have no intention to create a mechanism to support them centrally . This is a sad contrast to the supportive, if only advisory, approach exemplified by the web site maintained for England by the department for Communities and Local Government
