Applying For – Or Giving Up – A Plot

If anyone would like to apply to go on the waiting list for Pontcanna Permanent Allotments, then they need to visit the Cardiff Council Website. The Council, and not the PPAA Committee manage the waiting list. We are, however, pleased to note that the list is now open again after its closure due to covid 19. Tenancy runs from one February to the next.

If, on the other hand, anyone should wish to give up their allotment, then there’s a designated form which is recommended. However, for the reasons detailed here, PPAA Committee recommend also informing them.

The tenant should be aware that their plot must be cleared of all possessions, of improvised structures, of scrap materials and so on. If they fail to do this then they – or their estate – may be charged for its removal.

The suggested form is available on the link below.

However, it’s important to note, that should a tenant voluntarily give up their plot, then they can always reapply for one whenever they might want one again, whereas if the Council terminate their tenancy compulsorily then they will be barred permanently from all Cardiff sites.
