DTMS Group have been successful tenderers for an exciting opportunity to re-develop one of the oldest allotments in the UK.
Bedale Allotments recently headlined in local newspapers due to the landlord, the Church of England, wanting to sell off the 1.5 acre site to developers. After a petition signed by local residents from the Allotment association, an agreement was met to donate half of the site to the association with investment to improve the site, and make the smaller space more workable.
Initially, this consisted of site clearance followed by re-profiling and the importing of topsoil to improve levels and the quality of the plots.
DTMS have installed rabbit proof boundary fences to separate the allotments from the development land.
New turfed pathways with turf reinforcement to make the plots accessible from all sides. A turfed level parking area with ground protection grid to stop rutting.
A purpose built railway sleeper manure store to allow deliveries of local manure for the use on the allotments.
