David Archer, Chairperson of the Minehead Allotment Society said, " The new parking area has been a tremendous success as some of our elderly allotment holders are now able to bring their partners to the allotment and enjoy the whole day at the site".
The new parking area has also had the added benefit of removing additional vehicles from parking in Periton Way.
People really enjoy their allotments; this site is at full capacity. In fact there is only one allotment vacancy in the whole of Minehead and Alcombe at present.
The new parking area was funded through developer contributions for improvements in Periton Way.
