Brief history of allotments

Allotments in the UK have been in existence for hundreds of years but the system we see today has its roots in the Nineteenth Century. Back then land was given over to the poor people for food growing. This was desperately needed thanks to the rapid industrialisation of the country and the lack of a welfare. In 1908 the Small Holdings and Allotments Act came into force, placing a duty on local authorities to provide sufficient allotments, according to demand.

It wasn’t until the end of the First World War that land was made available to all. The rights of allotment holders in England and Wales were strengthened through the Allotments Acts of 1922, but the most important change can be found in the Allotments Act of 1925 which established statutory allotments which local authorities could not sell off or covert without Ministerial consent, known as Section 8 Orders.
