Allotments

Deanburn Allotments

The only council-owned allotments are at Deanburn in Penicuik. There is a container for tool storage, and the site is fenced and locked.

There is a waiting list of 1 to 5 years.

If you are unemployed, concessions are available.

Allotment and Food Growing Strategy

With local growing groups, we have drafted an Allotment and Food Growing Strategy. This identifies potential new housing developments where allotments may be located. The strategy is due for completion in spring 2020.

The Council is required, under the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Act 2015, to prepare allotment regulations. Any representation or objection with respect to the regulations should be made in writing to the address contained within the allotment regulations document before 28 January 2020
