A community of allotment holders in Brooke Road, Oakham, who have been on the site for up to 50 years, have been left ‘heartbroken’ after finding out that the land will be sold for development.

Allotment holders at Brooke Road Allotments in Oakham, face eviction from the site, which has held a near hundred year tenancy, following the decision of the owners of the land, Burley Estate Farm Partnership (BEFP)to sell the site for development.

BEFP has given Oakham Home Gardens and Allotment Society (OHGAS), which manages Brooke Road and three other sites in Oakham, formal notice to quit the site by the end of October 2016.
