For questions 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8 these sites are all managed by external organisations. The land is still retained under the ownership of the Council but the sites are leased to two Horticultural Societies that manage the sites on behalf of the Council. As such tenancy agreements, fees and charges, and information relating to the costs involving utilities and waste removal and also plot numbers and waiting lists would be held by these two organisations. I would therefore direct you to contact these organisations for the information you require, for your information their contact details are as follows:
