Myth buster

There are a lot of rumours' circulating regarding the allotments.

HPC are NOT culling chickens or any other livestock, we are not monsters!!

Yes you can walk your dog along  the Public Right of Way ( top of BE allotments)

 No, the gate at  Brookend will not be locked as this is not within our boundary.

Yes you can have a compost heap 

A review of other gates will be in April.

Yes, there is a new agreement that will be issued shortly to tenants, no major changes, just more meat on the bones of the previous one. 

We have to treat all tenants on each site the same.

Please remember, the Council makes decisions as a WHOLE, no one individual has the power to act alone,( unless has given a delegated power to do so ) and the CLERK does not make decisions.

Remember please do not bully, or intimate any member of STAFF or COUNCIL.

Stroud District Council DO NOT own the allotments, we are tenants. 

Please contact the Clerk for any answers you are looking for, please stop listening to all the rumours that trouble makers are stirring up.
