Site Management in Ealing
There are more than forty Council allotment sites in the Borough of Ealing, approximately a dozen sites owned and run by various charities, and four sites leased and managed by Acton Gardening Association.
Of the Council sites, there is currently one site, Pitshanger Park, which is fully self-managed. It is leased and managed by the Pitshanger Allotments Conservation Association that is responsible for the management of all aspects of the site including the site infrastructure.
Nine other sites, Ascott, Braund Avenue, Brentham, Blondin, High Lane, the Horsenden sites (Whitton Place, Whitton Drive and Horsenden) and South Acton operate under a Local Management scheme which involves responsibility for the day-to-day management of the site with the Council retaining responsibility for the maintenance of the basic site infrastructure.
The remainder of the Council sites are directly managed by the Council with the aid of volunteer Council-appointed site managers.
Colony software provides the Council and site managers tools for management of allotment sites, tenants, plots, waiting lists and rent.
