Allocation of plots
COVID-19 (Coronavirus) guidance
The National Association of Allotment Holders has issued the following advice to tenants:
- Keep hand sanitiser in your shed and wash your hands regularly.
- Use hand sanitiser before opening and closing any gate locks
- Observe 'Social Distancing' with each other (2-3 meters).
- Do not share tools
- Minimise the contact with each other for example no handshakes
- Do not wash your hands in water troughs
- We recommend that all communal facilities are closed.
- Get government guidance if you do need to clean an area that has been visited by an infected person.
- If you have livestock on the site and must visit twice a day, take a photograph on your phone of your livestock. Based on what is happening in other countries you may eventually have to print off a government form to leave the house but if challenged it would be good to be able to show a photograph of where you are going.
- Plan ahead to ensure that you have food and medication delivered to you during this time
- Stay away from vulnerable individuals such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions as much as possible
- If you display any symptoms of coronavirus stay at home and self-isolate for at least 14 days or until your symptoms have passed.
After you have applied for a plot you will be placed on a waiting list. When you have reached the top of the waiting list of your chosen site, we will contact you and give you details of the vacant plot.
Once an agreement is completed, cultivation can commence and an invoice will be sent for the rent and water.
