Here at bean-sprouts we have been following closely the story about Manor Gardens Allotments in London. The 100-year-old allotments are due to be bulldozed in just a few weeks to create a footpath serving the Olympic site, which will be used for just 4 weeks.
There is good news today - planning permission has been rejected. However the development agency is expected to appeal against the decision, so the allotments are not out of the woods yet.
If you haven't yet done so, please sign the petition to save Manor Gardens Allotments. And keep watching this space.
