Share your views on Community Growing Plans as part of Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill


The Scottish Parliament'sLocal Government and Regeneration Committee is examining the role of community gardens and allotments as part of the forthcoming Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill. They have produced a video highlighting community allotments and growing and are looking for the views of those interested.

The video asks:

  • What are the benefits for you of having access to an allotment?
  • What other types of spaces in your community could be used to grow food and planets?
  • How could a local council food growing plan assist you?

They ask for anyone interested to get in touch with their views, which you can do in a number of ways.
