    I am currently trying to find the owner of land in Ballynure Co. Antrim with a view to starting an allotment for the locality but don’t really know how to start can you give me any pointers.
    I am doing a search with land registry to see who owns the land with a view to contacting them directly - any other ideas?

    I am interested in vista allotments.

    My question was is it possible to buy/rent this allotment for 1 year and have an option to renew the licence after a certain period of time?

    also is it possible for someone to look after the property for the owner if they couldn’t make it down to the site all the time?

    I am starting allotments at Bruslee not far from Ballynure in Jan/Feb 2010. You can contact Newtownabbey Council for more ways to contact me.
