Allotments waiting lists in Sefton

 I have had a number of enquiries about waiting lists for the various sites in the borough. Below I am publishing the reply that I have received. I ought to say that the council is now letting half plots to new folk so that will speed things up. In addition the sites are of markedly different size, for example Birkdale Irrigation is
roughly 4 times the size of Town Lane. Some of the sites are self managed so those waiting for plots on those  sites need to contact the Associations directly. 
Allotment Name
Number on Waiting List
Blundell Lane, Southport
Moss lane, Southport
Town lane, Southport
Birkdale Irrigation, Southport
Altcar Road, Formby
Hoggs Hill, Formby
Scape Lane, Crosby
Sherwood Road, Crosby
Queensway, Crosby
Beach Road, Seaforth
Hatton Hill, Litherland
Dunnings Bridge Road, Bootle
Not available
Gardner Avenue, Bootle

Please note persons may well be on more than one waiting list across different sites. The Council only manages some of the allotments and we keep waiting lists for these only. Other sites are leased (self managed) and the allotment associations keep the waiting lists and manage the sites.

However, the details of persons on 'Council managed' sites by area are as follows:

Southport waiting lists is 317
Crosby waiting list is 393
Bootle waiting list is 164

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
