There are 22 allotment sites located throughout Hyndburn with an approximate total of 850 plots.
The sizes of the allotments vary to accommodate the differing requirements of our tenants. You may be allowed livestock, for example, chickens and rabbits, and some are available with sheds/tool stores in situ.
There are a number of ways to get more involved in your local park, this could include joining one of the many ‘Friends of the park’ groups or, if you have some spare time and wish to develop your skills, there maybe the opportunity to work along side an experienced park keeper.
There is one official Local Nature Reserve in Hyndburn but many areas of countryside. These include the Coppice and Woodnook Vale in Accrington, and, on a smaller scale, Jack House and Spout House woodlands.
A number of very successful community events have taken place in Hyndburn’s Parks and Open Spaces in recent times. A resource has been put together to help facilitate the organising of a community event on Council land.
