THE NEW allotments are not set to be completed until summer 2018, the council has revealed. 

Wokingham Borough Council Councillor Norman Jorgensen confirmed that the Winnersh allotments are on track to be completed in time for the summer, giving allotment holders the opportunity to start growing again in the prime season. 

The current allotments at the Winnersh Community Centre will be moved in time for the summer, despite fears that they wouldn’t be ready.

He said: “The current timescale for the delivery of the replacement allotments envisages that the new allotments should be available for use by early Summer 2018. 

“However the existing allotment holders at the Winnersh Allotments will not be required to leave their existing allotments until at least Autumn 2018.”
