Dear Didcot Town Council,
Considering the Allotment Act allows the keeping of hens on
publicly run allotments, does your organisation allow plot holders
to keep quail hens?
Dear Richard MacKenzie – with reference your enquiry: under the terms of
DTC tenant’s agreement it states under item 7.c: not keep livestock or
poultry in the Allotment Garden other than reasonable numbers of hens or
rabbits which shall not be kept for a business or a trade.
We do have 2 traditional hen keepers on our sites and would look at any
application for Quail hen on an individual basis. I hope that answers your
question. Brenda Andrews, Outdoor Services Manager, Didcot Town Council.
