The Right To Grow Motion
Ask the council to maintain a list of public land for ‘community cultivation’ or ‘environmental enhancement’
Councillors would be able to seek out land in their ward suitable for community food gardens
Community Groups,locals and volunteers groups could apply for a certificate of lawful use to cultivate the land for an agreed period without rental charge or ownership change
Land too contaminated for vegetables could be used for Bee Keeping and the like
The certificate of use would contain a level of standards which if found to be breeched, the certificate would be removed or transferred to another community group.
