INFORMATION FOR PLOT APPLICANTS Some important points about applying for one of our allotments.1. We can only allocate plots to Bristol City Council Tax payers. Regretably we cannot accept applications from outside this area.2. Cultivating an allotment plot will mean hard work, at least initially. Unless you’re very lucky, most plots on takeover will inevitably look a bit like a small jungle. The secret is to work the plot a little and often. Almost every week of the year.3.You must be prepared to commit, on average over the year, 5 to 6 hours a week, preferablymore.So,beforeapplying,pleaseaskyourself"HaveIgotthesparetime and commitment?". 4.
