Growing pains after veg plot holders are evicted
10:00am Monday 16th December 2013 in News
ALLOTMENT holders have been turfed off their land after fighting to protect their plots.
Vegetable growers had to leave the land, off Shrubland Road, Mistley, last week.
The allotment holders now have nowhere to go.
Allotment association chairman Phil Chatfield claims Mistley Parish Council could have done more to protect the plots.
He said: “I am not happy with the council or the developers. The developers have been selfish and perhaps hope like the bunker it will go to the inspectorate and they will get away with it.
“The site will be made a village asset but it will be too late.”
