Information for Tenants

We would like to thank all of our tenants for their continued support of Rotherham’s allotments. We hope that you find your plot productive and rewarding. We welcome you to send us photographs of your plots, especially ‘before and after’ shots. These can be emailed to us or sent via our Facebook page.

As a plot holder you need to respect your fellow plot holders. Tenants have a duty of care to each other and also to visitors to the allotment site. This includes not removing items from any other plot onsite, whether deemed tenanted or not. Allotments should be family-friendly places so abusive behaviour will not be tolerated.

On payment of your invoice, all tenants agree to abide by the Allotment Rules which can be found HERE and are also subject to a tenancy agreement. Please note that tenants must not remove items from any other plot, whether it be tenanted or deemed vacant. Tenancies are subject to cultivation inspections using this Plot Cultivation Criteria. Tenants found not to be cultivating to an expected standard will be given an opportunity to rectify this. If not rectified, your tenancy may be subject to termination.

Also on receipt of your rent payment, this will allocate you a share in the Alliance. A share certificate can be provided on request. By paying rent and holding a share, this means that you are able to contribute to decisions made by the Alliance via voting at our AGM. Only 1 vote per tenant is permitted.

Co-workers must be registered on the tenancy of the plot and can only be transferred the plot if they have been listed for a minimum of 12 months and have worked the plot in that time.

Should you have any questions or comments regarding your plot tenancy and the allotment site, please do not hesitate to contact us.
