Renting an allotment

Allotment inspections

We regularly inspect our sites and plots. This is to make sure that the rules set out in the agreement are being kept.

We must do this to benefit the current tenants, people on the waiting list, the surrounding community and the local environment. We also inspect to make sure Council owned fences, gates and water are maintained.

If we find the rules are being broken we will start the enforcement process. The first step is to send a notice. You then have 28 days to fix the problem, if this is done you can continue to rent the allotment.

If you don’t fix the problem or breech in tenancy within the 28 day period, the tenancy will be terminated and your plot will be let out to the next person on the waiting list.
