Tenants of allotment gardens at Cuckoo Hill and large plots / raised beds at Durslade community garden were asked to confirm and renew leases for 2020/21, returning the signed tenancy agreements and making payment by 24 March 2020 to the Community Office.
Thank you to those many people that have confirmed lease of the allotment garden for 2020/21, signed and returned the new tenancy agreements and made payment. Please continue to enjoy your allotment garden plot but within the current Government restrictions.
Not Yet Confirmed Renewal:
We would encourage those people that have not indicated renewal of the lease for 2020/21 and want to do so, please email firstname.lastname@example.org Please state your name, address, email (if applicable) and Plot No. In these circumstances, payment is not needed at the moment but will be required later.
Confirmed Not Renewing Lease
Some people have already indicated that they do not want to continue with a lease into 2020/21; thank you for informing the Council and therefore the plot is not available to you from 1 April 2020. If you do not want to renew your lease 2020/21 please email email@example.com we can then grant a new lease to someone on the Waiting List.
The Council has some people on the Waiting Lists for allotment garden plots. You may appreciate that at present we cannot enter into lease arrangements with new tenants but will do so as soon as possible; that is likely to be end April 2020. Thank you for your patience.
The Council appreciates that at this time in particular, allotment gardens help maintain our health and wellbeing; provide food; and enable exercise. However, of course, if you must visit the Council’s allotment gardens, you must comply with the Government’s directions: only visiting the allotment gardens if essential; distancing from other people; gatherings; and limiting visits for health/exercise.
