Farm Terrace Allotments are back in The Guardian today and the Comments Section is ‘running hot’. http://www.guardian.co.uk/lifeandstyle/gardening-blog/2013/jul/24/farm-terrace-allotments

‘When I later heard that 97% of such applications to change the status of allotments so that they can be built upon are approved by the secretary of state, the fight seemed lost, and the future for allotments bleak. How can you battle those kinds of odds? Money speaks louder than community, fresh air, broad beans and parsley.
But Sara Jane Trebar, spokeswoman for Save Farm Terrace is made of sterner stuff. “We knew all along that if the approval to build on the site was granted we would take this further,” she says. “We are going all the way with this.”‘
