Thank you to all who signed our petition. Lichfield District Council eventually served an enforcement notice for removal of the sheds which we appealed against.

And we won!

Sheds can stay on allotments.

We the undersigned call on Lichfield District Council to make the sensible decision to allow six foot by four foot sheds on allotments without planning permission. By doing so ensuring that a valuable community facility remains accessible to as many people as possible as often as possible.

Allotments are of health, economic, environmental, and community benefit to an area, and we believe Lichfield District Council should be doing all they can to encourage the use of the facility.

Many other councils have already taken the sensible decision, up and down the country sheds stand on allotments, so we call on Lichfield District Council to join them.

Lichfield District Council – please, get inspirational, get community minded, and allow the use of 6 foot by 4 foot sheds on allotments without planning permission.

This petition is now closed.
