Allotment rules

Rabbits

If you wish to keep rabbits, first get permission from the site manager. Specific rabbit keeper rules apply, in addition to the basic rules.

The Animal Welfare Act 2006 makes it an offence to fail to:

  • Provide a suitable environment for the rabbits
  • Provide a suitable diet and fresh water
  • Allow the rabbits to exhibit normal behaviour
  • House several rabbits together as they are social animals
  • Protect them from pain, injury, suffering and disease.
