Jersey's first public allotments are being created at Les Creux Country Park in St Brelade.

Planning consent has been given to the St Brelade allotment trust under new laws which enable a non-profit making charitable trust to provide the plots.

It is hoped the St Brelade allotments will be the first of several similar developments in the island.

The idea to create a trust came from the late Jersey advocate and former Senator Chris Lakeman.

The St Brelade Allotment Trust will be chaired by Jeff Hathaway.
