The Committee received a report reporting the results of the self-managed allotments consultation.
Following consideration, the Committee unanimously resolved to:
(1) Note the outcome of the self-managed consultation.
(2) Agree not to progress with options of self-management with all existing Council managed allotment site holders except for those who occupy plots at Epsom Common.
(3) Agree a further consultation with Epsom Common allotment tenants to include a copy of the terms and conditions of the self-managed scheme, to be actioned once the current allotment database has been subject to data cleanse to ensure integrity of information stored.
(4) Agree to a change in the self-management criteria to read: “At least 65% of the current plot holders support the application to join the self-managed scheme, non-responders will be treated as a vote to remain council managed”.
