Historic allotments under threat

Historic allotments under threat

Allotment holders at Haigside Allotments in Treherbert, Rhondda are campaigning to save their century-old allotments from development. The landowner's solicitor sent them letters to tell them that they would be evicted on 14th March.

3,600 people have signed a petition to ask their local authority to protect the 1.6 hectares of land for community use, rather than allow houses to be built upon it.
