Call for councils to promote community food growing through their local and neighbourhood plans
An article in Planning Resource highlights how community food growing contributes towards many social and health agendas. Journalist, Ben Kochan, explains how councils are now promoting such initiatives through their local and neighbourhood plans.
Place-makers can assist community growers by:
- Recognising the social and health benefits of community growing,
- Providing for community scale food growing in planning policies, and
- Identifying suitable sites
