- Why do we need to change the locks?
The old padlocks are worn and cannot be closed easily.
The new padlocks will improve site security.
- How will the new keys improve security?
Keys cannot be duplicated, and each has a unique number. Therefore, each numbered key belongs to a registered plotholder.
One key is available for each registered current plotholder.
- What if a plot has joint plotholders?
Keys are available for each REGISTERED current plotholder (up to maximum of two names per plot.)
- What is the cost of the new padlocks and keys for the Association?
Changing the locks is expensive. The cost of each key is £15.00. The cost of all the keys, padlocks and fitting the padlocks is over £2,500. The Association is paying 50% of the price of the keys for CURRENT registered plotholders only. NEW plotholders will pay the full price of £15.00.
- How much will registered plotholders pay for keys?
Each current registered plotholder will pay a DEPOSIT of £7.50 for each key. When they return the key on giving up the plot, they will receive £15.00.
New plotholders (joining after November 2021) will pay a deposit of £15.00
- When will the padlocks be replaced with new padlocks?
The new locks will hopefully be installed on Monday 29th November.
- When can registered plotholders collect keys?
The first opportunity for collecting keys is Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st of November 10-12.00 on both days. Other times will be offered to people who cannot come on those days.
- Where can keys be collected?
Keys will be distributed in the shop and deposits can only be paid by card (No cash).
In the case of lost keys, copies can only be obtained from the Association by contacting the Membership Secretary, email@example.com
The cost of each replacement will be £15.
