Greenhouses/Glasshouses - Guidlines

After the storm damage over the winter of 2013/14, a couple of people have queried whether it is advisable to allow greenhouses or glasshouses to be erected on site.

The following guideline was agreed at the Committee Meeting 28th September 2014.

It is proposed that we continue to allow glass houses to be used (this is in line with Colchester Borough’s allotment policy).

Please note the following;

  1. Ensure that glasshouses are secured as firmly as possible to the ground. 
  2. Ensure that any damage, broken glass etc. is cleared up as soon as possible.
