As part of the Committee’s efforts to improve the sites we manage, plot inspections are starting this weekend 8th/9th August 2020.
It is a condition of an allotment tenancy that a plot is well cultivated – in other words – the majority of the plot should be used to grow crops. We know that this is not an easy job, but that’s what you signed up for when you rented a plot from us. We now give notice that If plots are not maintained to a reasonable and acceptable standard, and you do not have a good reason, you could lose your tenancy at the end of the season.
This is a new era for WEGA. In previous years, it was not unusual to only have 4 or 5 new tenants a year overall. This year we are already way past 20 new tenants. At this rate, there will be waiting lists for people wanting to rent a plot from WEGA. This is great news for the association, but bad news for people not looking after their plots. If you are not maintaining your plot and are having difficulty for whatever reason, speak to us and we will discuss it with you. Please do not leave it until October. It may be too late then.
