Supporting Landshare - committee motion 9 Feb

Lib Dem Councillor Berni Turner is calling on the City Council to support the Landshare scheme. 

Berni has submitted a motion to the next meeting of the Environment and Climate Change Select Committee on 9th February.

The motion reads:

This Council welcomes the Landshare website ( which is there to connect people who want to grow their own fruit and vegetables, to people who have space to share.

It is also a community website that enables people to share knowledge and resources, encourage debate and discussion, plus lower barriers to entry into the "grow your own" movement.

Council resolves to support this initiative by: 

Putting a link to the website on the Councils website
Place an article in the next City magazine
Publicise to all those customers on allotment site waiting lists
Continue to promote the Councils allotments”
