This working party focuses upon rules and guidance that accord with the council’s priority of environmentally-sound practices that address current anomalies, and that encourage allotment holders wishing to engage more fully with sound environmental practices.

• To consider proposals for changes in allotment policy and management. For example: revision of policy and rules; introduction of eco-friendly practices; wider tenant responsibilities; allocation of tenancies and potential to reduce the cost of the service
• to consider additional low or zero-cost activities to promote good ecological practice on allotments
• To make recommendations in time for introduction for the following year
