As an allotment holder you must:

  • keep your plot tidy and cultivated

  • show consideration and respect for other plot-holders
  • obtain permission to put up sheds or greenhouses
  • pay your rent promptly
  • inform the council straight away if you change your address or other contact details

Best Kept Allotment Competition

We are delighted to announce each year a competition is held for the best kept allotment on Stutton Road. This is held in memory of Roger Clarke who was a dedicated allotment enthusiast and an upstanding member of Tadcaster’s allotment community.

This year we are pleased to introduce the very first best kept allotment competition on our Westfield site also. With a change in the site design and introduction of new pathways Westfield now has a larger number of plots, this will be an exciting challenge for all proud allotment owners.
