Freedom of Information Request


Received: 3 April 2023

I am writing to you under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 to request the following information which pertains to allotments covered by your jurisdiction.
Please may you provide data on:
* The number of allotment sites and individual plots which are provided by the council in your jurisdiction
* The number of people currently on the council's waiting list for an allotment plot
* The average length of time, in months/weeks/days, someone is on the waiting list before a plot becomes available for them
* The annual cost in fees/rental charges that a person pays to the council for one allotment plot
Please can you provide this information in one table on a spreadsheet, with the column headings as follows:
Council Name
Number of Allotment Sites
Number of Allotment Plots
Number of People on Waiting Lists
Average Time on Waiting List
Annual Cost of Fees/Rental Charges (£)
Supporting Notes (if applicable)
If it is not possible to provide the information requested due to the information exceeding the cost of compliance limits identified in Section 12, please provide advice and assistance, under the Section 16 obligations of the Act, as to how I can refine my request.
If you can identify any ways that my request could be refined, I would be grateful for any further advice and assistance.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me via this email and I will be very happy to clarify what I am asking for and discuss this request.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response.
