From time to time, Woodlands.co.uk commissions reports on topics relevant to woodlands and woodland owners. Here are some links to them:
Allotments: Their provision, protection and potential improvement
This report focuses on allotments and their provision in the UK with a view to investigate whether their numbers can be increased. There are 12,107 allotment and community garden sites across Great Britain, making up 135 km2 of land, but within the last 15 years demand for a plot has greatly increased. With a wealth of benefits to personal health, community well-being and to the environment, there is every incentive to encourage their further provision and use, and to keep protecting those that already exist. This report summarises potential areas for improvement and how increasing the number of plots could be implemented.
