Community allotments could be on the way for Letterkenny

Community allotments could soon be a reality in Letterkenny after the local town council decided this afternoon to progress the issue at its next meeting.

A group has been established locally to progress the issue, and it has identified lands opposite the council offices on Neil T Blaney Road as the best possible site.

A decision to provide allotments on council land was tasken six years ago, but never acted on.

Recently, the council suggested that a HSE project to provide community gardens in St Conal's might be an option, but they are for communities rather than individuals.
