Current allotment consultation

Lincoln’s allotments are in line for a major boost as a major refurbishment programme gets underway.  From November 2017, and for the following eighteen months, all 18 of the City allotment sites will benefit from the investment of a significant sum of money to aid their renewal. This includes the establishment of a brand new site at Melbourne Road in Birchwood in conjunction with the Birchwood BIG local project.
