Allotments Act 1832

1832 CHAPTER 42

An Act to authorize (in Parishes inclosed under any Act of Parliament) the letting of the Poor Allotments in small Portions to industrious Cottagers.

[1st June 1832]

WHEREAS in Parishes inclosed under Acts of Parliament there are in many Cases Allotments made for the Benefit of the Poor, chiefly with a view to Fuel, which are now comparatively useless and unproductive: And whereas it would tend much to the Welfare and Happiness of the Poor if those Allotments could be let at a fair Rent, and in small Portions, to industrious Cottagers of good Character, while the Distribution of Fuel might be augmented by appropriating the said Rents to the Purchase of an additional Quantity; be it therefore enacted by the King's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same, That it shall and may be lawful for the Trustees of the said Allotments, together with the Churchwarden's and Overseers of the Poor, in Parish Vestry assembled, and they are hereby required, to let Portions of any such Allotment, not less than One Fourth of a Statute Acre, and not exceeding One such Acre, to any One Individual, according to their Discretion, as a yearly Occupation from Michaelmas to Michaelmas, (and at such Rent as Land of the same Quality is usually let for in the said Parish,) to such industrious Cottagers of good Character, being Day Labourers or Journeymen legally settled in the said Parish, and dwelling within or near its Bounds, as shall apply for the same in the Manner herein-after mentioned.
