No argument with the reality, but note that in the US "parcel" means an
area of land that is delineated by a deed (at the registry of deeds) and
can be bought and sold.   I suspect that your entire allotments area is
one parcel and that the per-person areas are not "parcels" in the legal
sense.  In the US, that's definitely the case for the "community garden"
in my town.

I think the real objection was to landuse=.
We don't micromap within landuse.  For example, we don't have


but just landuse=retail for the entire area - probably in most cases a
PARCEL on which the facility is located.
