Information on Allotments

What is the three month probationary period and how does it work?

We give every new tenant an initial three month probationary period during which we would hope to see some evidence that gardening has started on the plot.

As long as we see that you are making an effort to use and maintain the plot, you should have nothing to worry about. We would like tenants to aim for approx. 25 percent of the plot to be in use.

If, after three months, there is little evidence of progress, we will contact you to find out whats happening. Please be aware this places the tenancy of the plot at risk of being terminated and the plot being re-let.
