Plot Inspections

In accordance with the conditions of the lease, plot inspections will be carried out in late March to early April, late May to early June and late September to early October depending on seasonal conditions. The inspections will be carried out by members of the Allotment Association, possibly with assistance of a Parish Council representative if determined necessary by the Parish Clerk.
