Plans to expand Marlow allotment project set to be shelved

Plans to expand a popular allotment project are set to be turned down by Marlow Town Council on Wednesday in favour of a scheme to replicate it elsewhere.

The Triangle, based at the town’s Hanging Hill allotment site, near Prospect Road, opened in March 2013, providing an adapted space where people with disabilities and other special needs could use the facility.

The group, which hosts at least 15 amateur gardeners every week, had sought to take over an extra plot to keep up with increasing demand for the service.

In its report to the town council’s Planning, Environment and Transportation Committee, the Allotment Working Group recognised the project had been a ‘resounding success’, but did not recommend approving its expansion.

The working group instead suggested a ‘Triangle Project Framework’ be created by council officers and members of the Marlow Allotment Association that would help other groups recreate the Triangle’s success elsewhere.
