A concerned plot holder has contacted PPAA Committee, about certain dogs apparently being allowed to roam freely whilst on the allotment site. In this case the dog was trampling over another plot’s crops. Clearly, this is not acceptable. Also, apart from any visible damage, it’s probably fair to say that all of us plot holders want to be sure that no dog has fouled or marked our produce in any way while we have not been there.
So, while dogs are allowed on to the allotments, their owners are reminded that it is a requirement of our tenancy to keep all of our dogs on a lead – or tethered – at all times whilst within the site boundaries. (Tenancy Agreement, Provision 18 in the Schedule).
Kind thanks everyone.
