Running The Allotments
The site is owned by Sunderland City Council (each smallholder pays a rent), but it is self managed.
This means that a Committee, drawn from, and elected by allotment holders, manages the running and development of the allotments.
The Committee meets regularly, and also holds an Annual General Meeting (open to all plot holders).
For information about the Committee, or to see minutes of meetings, please click on the underlined words above.

If you'd rather, you can just send us an email, but it must contain all the information the form requests.
Following development of an entrance car park, the area has been cordoned off so that the mats and gras have time to establish properly.
Please make other arrangements for parking in the meantime - we hope to open the new car parking facility in the Spring of 2015.
