If your group is responsible for the allotment site and you will be handing out allotment plots to others then you will be responsible for the overall upkeep of the site and making sure everyone else adheres to the lease or agreement that you have signed with the landowner. One option is to include these terms when you are drawing up your tenancy agreement for your plot holders. Below is an example tenancy agreement which does that. Another option is to keep the tenancy agreement very simple and simply include a condition that plot holders abide by certain site rules. This may give you the option to amend site rules without having to renew everybody’s tenancy agreements.

Although some people may not like the idea of insisting on rules for the allotment plots it is really important that you consider this option, particularly as your own lease will stipulate certain conditions which all plot holders will have to abide by. Site rules will give plot owners a clear idea of what is expected of them and what is and is not allowed. It is important to have a system for dealing with problems that is fair, open, and pre-agreed with tenants, and it is also important to ensure good communication between tenants and the management group. This will hopefully lead to a more peaceful allotment site and allow you to dissipate any grievances quickly and calmly. The sample tenancy agreement below includes conditions which could alternatively be drawn up as a separate site rules document you can always add extra terms depending on your own requirements and the stipulations of your own site lease.
