The NAS gudiance is that plot inspections can commence. We will take into account the fact that plot-holders may be ill, self-isolating or shielding.
So if you can’t get to the plot in April let Nick our membership secretary know at email@example.com now.
Unless you have informed us why you can’t make it to your plot, we expect to see cultivation.
We are using the NAS model agreement that would mean you would expect a quarter of the cultivable area of the plot to be cultivated within the next three months and the whole within one year.
This would give tenants who have been obliged to shield themselves a fair opportunity to restore their plots to good condition, taking into account the degeneration in plot condition that has occurred in their absence.
In addition, it would be a good idea to insist that all material nuisances to other plot-holders resulting from non-cultivation be remedied within the same three months.
This would mean, for example, the removal of grass seed heads and overhanging brambles.
The next plot inspection will be in mid to late April by your committee.
