Have your say on Community Growing Plans

Last month we flagged up that the Scottish Government is keen to hear from Scottish communities as part of its scrutiny of the Community Empowerment (Scotland) Bill.

As part of this process, MSPs now want your help to shape the new law on Community Growing Plans. The Local Government and Regeneration Committee is considering how access to allotments and other types of growing space should be supported as part of a new law on community empowerment in Scotland.

We know that lots of our successful grantholders have developed brilliant community allotments and growing spaces, so we think this is a great opportunity for you to have your say about the future of this kind of work in Scotland!

Have a look at this short video for more information:

In particular, here’s what the parliament would like to hear about from you:

  1. What are the benefits of having access to an allotment?
  2. What other types of spaces could be used to grow food and plants?
  3. How could a food-growing plan assist you?
