New Allotments in Kirkintilloch

East Dunbartonshire Council has opened its first council-run allotment site.  Rosebank Allotment site in Kirkintilloch will be available both to East Dunbartonshire residents and to Social Work Service users.  Half of the 40 plots will be rented to local residents, the other 20 will be reserved for East Dunbartonshire Community Addiction Team to deliver a therapeutic horticultural project.

The project started in 2009 when a steering group was established for community allotment development. Social Work secured funding to develop the allotment site. The site identified is in Council ownership and was originally part of Meikelhill Colliery.
