Cefn Road Allotments and Surrounding Area

The Community Council has received a complaint that some allotment tenants are leaving litter and other debris adjacent to the car park area behind the houses of Cefn Road.

It is not a large amount that is being left, so Members ask for the cooperation of tenants in assisting the Community Council in keeping the allotments and surrounding area in a tidy and environmentally considerate manner.

Following a number of complaints regarding dog excrement and damaged plants at the Cefn Road allotments, all residents adjacent to the allotments have been contacted to remind them not to allow dogs on the allotments at any time. The allotment site is for allotment tenants only, for the purpose of cultivation of crops.

The Council provides a large open space in the area for leisure purposes and this can be accessed without going through the tenant’s allotment site.
