Buxworth Allotment Site

Buxworth Allotment Site is currently under construction and will be located adjacent to to football field at Buxworth Recreation Ground, Station Road, Buxworth.

Planning approval for the site was granted in December 2011. Shortly after this, work began on extending the access track and installing the parking area. Unfortunately this work was halted by access problems over the Government Pipeline which runs across this area. Investigation followed and the cost of necessary work to continue with the approved location for the car park proved to be extremely expensive. An alternative location for parking provision was identified and planning permission granted in August 2015.

During Autumn/Winter 2015 preparation of the allotment site started, with the first stage - to clear vegetation by piling the top soil from the area where the plots are to be located. Fencing to three sides of the site was then carried out.

During April 2016 the soil has been levelled out again to dry out and work on the car park provision is due to start on 16th May 2016. Top soil from the car park area will be added to the allotment area.
