Trafford Council is asking residents about allotments in a bid to build an Allotment Strategy.

There are more than 30 allotments with a total of more than 1,500 plots all across the area.

According to the Trafford Council website all of them have a waiting list and of these only two of them have a waiting list which is short. These are Grosvenor Road Allotments in Sale and Granville Park Allotments in Urmston.
