Whitehawk Hill Oct 2012
There has been some publicity in the local media regarding the Councils plans for the future of Whitehawk Hill. A consultation document has been distributed which includes proposals for a new strip of allotments on the west side of the hill. The Brighton and Hove Allotment Federation were not consulted on these proposed new allotments. The Federation does not support the proposal for new allotments on this site.
We have listened to the concerns of local conservationists. This area was scheduled under the original Local Nature Reserve Management Plan for reversion to a mosaic of grassland and scrub. For this and other reasons, we do not think it is an appropriate site for new allotments.
