Frequently asked questions regarding allotments
The length of the allotment tenancy is usually one year, but this is automatically renewed at the end of your agreement unless we’re notified that you no longer want the plot. This agreement runs from the 1st of October.
You will receive a renewal letter to notify you of this.
We are happy for you to grow whatever you want on your allotment within reason and within the law! We would just ask that you give consideration to your neighbouring tenants when deciding what to plant.
You must not keep livestock or poultry in the Allotment Garden other than reasonable
numbers of hens or rabbits which shall not be kept for a business or a trade.
This depends on which site you are interested in. Some of our sites are more popular than others so the waiting lists on these may move more slowly than others. We can advise you on how long you would expect to wait when you get in touch, but most people wait for less than a year.
The water on allotment sites is usually switched off between October and March (depending on the weather) to ensure that the pipes are not damaged by frost. If there are any issues regarding the allotment water at other times, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and necessary repairs will be undertaken.
