I’m one of the residents who lives next to the allotments on Harrogate Road. I hate to complain but could I request that noisy power tools are not used on the allotments for long periods of time on a Sunday? My family is trying to enjoy our garden on our only day off but somebody has been using a petrol fuelled power tool of some sort for the last 2 hours and it’s making an awful noise to the point where everybody has gone back inside. I appreciate there is work to be done on the site but could this be done in a more considerate way with regards to residents living next to the allotments?
Hi, I have passed your concerns to the committee. Please note most plot holders have full time jobs and weekends may be the only time they get to work on their plot.
Thanks for your reply. I understand what you are saying. We also work full time jobs and the weekend is the only we have got to relax in our garden.
We appreciate that people do normal jobs on their plots over the weekends, however, a very noisy petrol engine running consistently for over 2 hours on a Sunday afternoon is not respectful to people living next the allotments.
I hope a compromise can be reached.

Hello, I live next to these allotments and somebody keeps bringing a dog onto the site and leaving it tied up and all it does is bark all day long. It is there now barking loudly. I have nothing against dogs and have 2 of my own but I work from home and my job involves speaking to people on the phone all day. This dog’s barking is becoming a problem. Please could you speak to the owner and have them do something about this as it’s causing an issue with my work. I also feel sorry for the dog as it’s clearly not having any fun being left in the allotments like that.
Hi Neil, I have passed your message to the allotment committee, and asked them to speak to the dogs owner.
