Allotment holders take on running of Elms Farm

Allotment holders take on running of Elms Farm

The Elms Farm Allotment Association (EFAA) will be taking over the administration of the allotments from the 1st February 2024, Stansted Mountfitchet Parish Council have announced today.

By agreeing to take on this responsibility, the EFAA will in future oversee the annual renewal of tenancy agreements, revisions to Schedule 1, site inspections, the management of the waiting list, finances and other duties.

SMPC believes the change in responsibilities will be to the benefit allotment holders at Elms Farm. This is because EFAA committee members are all current allotment tenants and as such will ensure actions taken along with any inspections are fair and reasonable and in the best interest of allotment holders.

As part of the handover SMPC will provide EFAA with all tenant contact details and supporting information. EFAA are aware of the GDPR regulations for handling personal information and have set up appropriate ways to handle the data.

SMPC will keep their current allotment email open for the first month following the transition and will advise of the change on our website.

In the future EFAA will handle any suggestions, enquiries, reports, incidents and issues you have, with the support of SMPC.
