INFO SHEET: Common objections

INFO SHEET: Common objections

by Russ Grayson, updated May 2020.

Objections have common themes

There are a number of reasons why people have objections to the repurposing of public land for community garden development. Those that follow have come up repeatedly in deliberations around proposals for new gardens.

In some cases these objections have been resolved through discussion with opponents, however sometimes opponents will not amend their opposition, and community garden development has gone ahead despite them. The objections of opponents have seldom proven to be real.
