If an issue is found by the officer during an
inspection, an improvement notice is sent to the tenant outlining what needs resolving and giving the tenant a minimum of 28 days before a re-inspection. The re-inspection may be carried out after 28
days. A notice relating to cultivation or weed infestation will remain active for three months after it is issued.
Notices for waste on a plot, or any other non-cultivation related issue, will remain active until the issue is addressed.
If on re-inspection the issue has been addressed, the notice is cancelled and the tenant is no longer on notice. If the officer finds the issue has not been resolved, a second improvement notice is
issued. This effectively gives the tenant a second chance to improve their plot.
If you have a good reason as to why you cannot work your plot, it is important that you let us know. Please make sure your plot is numbered very clearly so there is no confusion between
allotments. If you think you have received a notice by mistake, please contact us.
