Hoylake Allotment Association has submitted a planning application to convert a section of land at the end of the Sandringham Avenue football pitch in to approximately 21 additional allotment plots. As waste land will be reclaimed behind Manor Road station, the football pitch will be repositioned and retained. Sport England were keen on the pitch being retained. A wildlife survey has also been undertaken and cuttings from a tree that is possibly native black poplar have previously been taken for subsequent replanting.
Even if planning permission is secured the additional plots can only go ahead if funding is raised for appropriate security fencing – theft of crops and shed contents is unfortunately an issue.
