Threat to Combe Down Allotments Site: Public Meeting 12th December at Combe Down Primary School Hall at 7.15 p.m. (doors open at 7)
By an accident of history, the large allotment site at Combe Down has been held in leasehold since 1894. The site, along with the adjacent quarry and the Monkton School playing fields, is owned by a distant relative of the original landowner, who is not a resident of Bath. The site was originally procured by the Monkton Combe Parish Council to serve the workers in the Bath stone mines but, following city boundary changes in 1967, became the responsibility of Bath City Council. The Council has held rolling leases since that time. Unfortunately the owner of the land has recently given advance notice of his intention to end the lease in 2025. Our Association is working hard to try and protect this allotment site. A public meeting is being organised and our officers have arranged meetings with local Councillors and Cabinet members. Do contact us if you can help to mobilise community support for the retention of the 64 plots on this site. You can find a copy of the briefing note we have sent to our MP and Councillors here.
