Permission must be obtained before the erection of any structure* on allotment gardens in order to comply with the
Ground Lease from Bristol City Council. This fact is included in the Tenancy Agreement. Structures must be
appropriate for an allotment garden and for the plot size, and maintained in a neat and good condition. They should
be sectional and easily disassembled for removal so that the site can be quickly restored as cultivatable ground.
They should be placed on removable foundations such as pre-cast concrete paving or blocks or railway sleepers.
Gutters or other suitable method of collecting rainwater from the structure must be provided.
This is a mandatory requirement.
Please liaise with neighbours and the Site Representative before making application.
To apply, please print off this form, and complete it.
When you have completed the form please pass it to your Site Representative who, all being well, will submit it to
the committee at the next meeting. If you can scan the form, you can send it electronically - just use the HwDAA
contact page and attach the form.
* Includes larger polytunnels, but not mini greenhouses, fruit cages etc - please check with your site rep if
