Save the Allotment

London's oldest allotment is under threat of development for housing by the landlord. 

We desperately need to raise funds to pay for legal and specialist advice to help save our much loved allotments. 
If you can spare just a few pound we would be very grateful for your help and support.

Last night (Monday 27th March 2017) we took the campaign to save London’s oldest allotments to the bi-annual forum of the councillors of Walpole Ward in Ealing, the electoral ward where Northfields Allotments is located.

In a packed meeting that was greatly swelled by a large number of plotholders from the allotments, Ealing Dean Allotment Society chairwoman Christina Fox gave an impassioned speech as to why we so strongly opposed any further development on the site.

On Sunday 25 September, the Ealing Dean Allotments Society (EDAS) called a Special General Meeting (SGM) for all plotholders at Northfields Allotments to discuss the proposed development by Pathways on the allotment site. The plan to construct a mix of social and private housing, including a five or six storey building is expected to result in the loss of 10% of the allotment site.

PRESS RELEASE

9th September 2016

London's oldest allotment faces development threat

The oldest surviving allotment in London is facing the threat of being built on thanks to plans by its landlord to construct a new housing development on part of the allotment site. 

Last week all plotholders at Northfields Allotments on Northfield Avenue in Ealing were informed by their landlord, Pathways, that it intends to build on 10% of the allotment site. Pathways plans to construct a mix of social and private housing, including a five or six storey building, and has opened consultations on the plans.
