About plots
© Hotwells & District Allotments Ltd 2007-2018
Application for plots by the members of the same family. Our policy is that each family member (including a husband and wife) may have a plot in their own right although each must separately go through the waiting list. Inheriting a plot/Helpers Clause 5 of the Second Schedule of the Tenancy agreement states: “Not to assign, underlet, or part with the possession of the allotment garden or any part thereof. The plot will be subject to a tenancy agreement with only one person. That person is the Tenant who is responsible for the conduct of any other person/s who may assist or visit the plot. Adverse behaviour of anyone on the plot could lead to the Tenancy being terminated”, So this means that:- only spouses or partners (regardless of gender or marital status) may inherit a plot, but not other family members, friends, relations etc. Someone who helps you on your plot, even if they’ve been doing this for a long time can’t inherit your plot.  If they want a plot of their own, then they should be encouraged to apply for a plot through the normal channels and join the waiting lists. Can I have more ground?  Perhaps  -  Due the high demand for allotments (and in common with other allotment organizations in the Bristol area), we are currently only letting Small (half a large plot) or Medium plots to new tenants.  But, if you have had a small or medium plot for at least 2 years, you can apply to the Plots Secretary for more ground.  If you have a medium plot, be aware that the only way to get a large plot is to forfeit your medium one. All tenants seeking more land would have to satisfy the Committee that:- (a)  they were making 100% and immaculate use of the current plot and  (b)  they had the necessary time and energy to, perhaps, double the work involved without recourse to assistance. N.B. - All of our waiting lists are CLOSED so the chances of getting more ground on any site at present is very unlikely.
who can inherit, who can’t, another or more plot.
