Allotment Inspection Policy and Process

Keeping your allotment free of weeds and under cultivation is important  to the allotment community and is a requirement of your tenancy. We will regularly inspect the allotments to ensure that standards are maintained, allotment plots are in a safe condition  and that they are under cultivation.

Our inspection process is detailed in this document  Inspection and Notices Process v1.0

If you fail an inspection a “Failed Inspection /Weed Notice”  will be issued to you.  You will then have a period of time in which to comply with the notice.  Failed Inspection & Weed Notice

Under civil law anyone involved in allotment management has a common duty of care to ensure that their allotment sites are run in as safe and appropriate manner as possible. This duty of care is extended towards all people accessing the allotment site and its boundaries, including allotment holders and tenants, town council representatives carrying out duties, members of the public, bona fide visitors and volunteers.
