Can I grow vegetables on my plot?
Yes, you can. Most local authorities accept the use of allotments as falling under agricultural use, and therefore not requiring planning permissions.
In the Crowborough parish council v secretary of state for the environment (1981) JPL 281 (Div court) it was held that the use of the land for allotments was an agricultural use, falling within the definition of agriculture, and that in determining on appeal against what was then called a S 64 determination, the secretary of state had erred in law in holding otherwise.

Can I put a shed on my plot?
Yes, in most cases a shed should be acceptable to the local authority, if ancillary to the use of the land.

Does my plot come with planning permission?
No, all land sold by Spectacular Land 4U is horticultural land.

Could I apply for planning permission for change of use?
As the registered freeholder that is entirely up to you, however, we do not in any way imply that permission for change of use will be granted for any land sold by us.

Can I bequeath my plot in my will?
Yes, you can.

Are the sites managed?
All the plots will be situated on working vineyards or orchards so they are tended on a regular basis. We do plan to establish site committees on each site with communal recreation areas for committee member useage as an incentive to join.

Can I put bee hives on my plot?
In planning terms yes. However, where plots are in close proximity to each other, we would consider bee hives inappropriate. However, certain larger plots or plots at the extremities of the site may be suitable and we would be glad to discuss this on an individual basis.

Can I put bee hives on my plot?
Yes, allotment gardens often include the keeping of chickens and other small livestock. In such cases we require that any such livestock are securely contained within the plot and not allowed to roam over common areas or onto neighbours land. Certain livestock such as cockerels are not considered appropriate as our aim is to promote peaceful environments.
