Interim Management Committee
From 2015, Fingal County Council want Allotment Associations established at each allotment scheme in Fingal. Each Allotment holder will have to become a member of the Association, cost €10 pa.
Each site must have a Management Committee to help the Council with day-to-day issues and represent the allotment holders.
In January a number of volunteers got together to form an interim committee to get the ball rolling. They have been working very closely with the Council.
