Allotment rules

Sheds

The council does not provide sheds for plotholders. There are a few concrete sheds remaining, allocated by local site managers. The relatively modest cost of prefabricated garden sheds has led to most gardeners preferring to have a shed of their own on their plot. Being temporary structures – concrete bases are not allowed – these sheds do not require planning permission, but must be approved for position, size and material by the site manager. A tenant who puts up a shed without getting permission first may be asked to take it down.
