ALLOTMENTS in Exmouth could get a makeover if a proposal to sell council land is backed.

ALLOTMENTS in Exmouth could get a makeover if a proposal to sell council land is backed.

On Monday members of the Town Hall's Finance Committee are to vote on selling two Town Council-administered allotments plot in Hamilton Lane.

In April the Committee agreed in principle to sell the plots, collectively valued at �3,400 by the district valuer, with a third of the proceeds to go to the Exmouth and District Allotment Association.

This would pay for capital and infrastructure improvements at the town's two allotment sites at Hamilton Lane and Pound Lane.

The recommendation reads: "... (The sale is because) both locations... (are)...inaccessible to the main allotment land."

If sold the use of the land would be restricted and a covenant to prevent the land from being used for any purpose other than a garden imposed.
