Allotment rules

Allotments are generally safe and pleasant places for both gardeners and neighbours. The rules keep things this way. Please note that these rules are specific to the council’s allotment sites. Charities and private allotment associations have their own rules.

The allotment rules are given to each tenant at the start of their tenancy, and also sent with the rent reminder whenever the rules are reprinted. The tenant is responsible for any person they invite onto the allotments and for making them aware of the rules and health and safety guidance.

The information within this section explains some of the rules and what you should do if you feel a rule is being breached.
