Allotment site regulations: further provision

399.Section 116 sets out the process that local authorities must undertake to make allotment site regulations, or to vary or revoke them. Subsection (2) provides that local authorities must at least one month before making regulations advertise their intention to do so, the purpose of the regulations, where they may be inspected and details about making representations. They must also make copies of the proposed regulations available. A person who objects to the regulations may make representations to the local authority and must be allowed an opportunity to be heard and his or her representations taken account of before the local authority makes its final decision (subsections (3) and (4)). Where regulations contravene the local authority’s lease of the site, the provision in the lease is to prevail (subsection (11)).
