Allotment rules

Sharing a plot

Allotments are let to a family living at a single address. It is not necessary to register all contributing members of the family as tenants.

A tenant may, by arrangement with the local site manager, share an allotment plot with a friend. The tenant remains wholly responsible for the entire plot, the actions of the other person and the payment of rent. When the tenancy is terminated, the plot will be let to the next available person on the waiting list. If you share with someone who would like a plot of their own, they must register on the site manager’s waiting list at the earliest opportunity.

If your plot is becoming too much for you to deal with, speak to your site manager about finding some help (don’t expect the manager to do the work for you). You may be able to reduce the size of the plot or move to a smaller one.
