Section 108 defines “allotment site” for the purpose of Part 9 as an area of land consisting wholly or partly of “allotments”, as defined in section 107. An “allotment site” also includes other local authority land that allotment tenants use in connection with their allotments, such as communal buildings, and environmental areas.
