Self-managed sites

Responsibility for running many of Salford's allotment sites has now been handed over to allotment associations in a successful self-management initiative.

The main principles of the agreement include that the associations will:

  • Provide three trustees from a formally constituted group, with whom the council makes the agreement
  • Manage and control the allotments and collect the rent payable
  • Manage and control the tenant waiting lists/rents, etc
  • Be responsible for the general infrastructural maintenance of the site
  • Take out adequate public liability insurance for the period of agreement
  • Provide details of their proposed charges to tenant which must be agreed by the council

Whereas, Salford City Council will:

  • Provide initial details of existing tenants/waiting list to the association
  • Act as arbiter in any dispute between the trustees and tenants
  • Undertake any necessary tree work on the sites
  • Continue to maintain a water supply, where it already exists and pay water charges
  • Continue to support the trustees, where applicable, in the development of the sites

If you're interested in developing self-management at your own allotment site, please contact Steve Dennison on 0161 607 1759.
