Mystery plan for Brins Close allotments sparks concern among residents

Sign announcing that land near Brins Close is to be cleared for allotments.

People living in the Brins Close area of Stoke Gifford are waiting to learn more about a proposal to turn an area of rough grassland into allotments.

The mystery plan came to light last weekend when a sign announcing “this land is to be cleared for allotments” appeared on the pathway at the southern end of Field Farm Close.

An enquiry by The Journal to the email address shown on the sign elicited the following response and it is understood that others have received the same message:

“Stoke Gifford Allotments is a community led initiative that has been able to secure land off Brins Close in order to provide local residents with allotments.”

“Public access will still be maintained as we intent to make new pathways around the field – the primary objective is to promote community involvement on this area of under-utilised land rather than exclusion.”

“We anticipate holding a meeting on-site to establish interest within the next few weeks, which everyone will be welcome to attend.”

“Flyers with more information will be distributed next week to local residents and we will keep you up to date via email with progress.”
