Survey on allotment space across Aberdeenshire

Aberdeenshire Council is conducting a survey about allotments, demand for allotments and future provision.

Aberdeenshire Council is conducting its biggest ever survey of demand for allotment plots to help guide future provision of growing spaces across the area.

There are currently 262 council-owned plots and a further 127 private plots across Aberdeenshire but none in Turriff, and demand far outstrips supply.

The survey aims to identify where demand is highest for allotment space, how much space people are looking for, and how far people would be willing to travel to reach a site.

Responses may also help identify areas for future provision and encourage users to form groups to ensure allotments are properly maintained and managed. The responses will help inform future decision-making, which could include making allotment space part of the Local Development Plan process.

The survey can be found at and will remain open until Sunday, October 28.
