  • December 2022

    Schedule 8

    BDAC are holding a series of further meetings in January 2023 to consult on the draft management agreement.

    In addition to the main document proposed changes to the “Complaints Handling” system which many associations have found frustrating. Details of the system appear in both the Handbook and Schedule 8 appendix.

    If anybody has any concerns you contact your local executive member or BDAC Secretary at bdac.allotments@gmail.com.

    The Schedule 8 available for download may differ slightly from the one sent to the BCC for consideration as it is still under discussion within the Executive.

  • The New Agreement

    Latest Update

    BDAC are currently awaiting a response to issues raised in discussion with the BCC following a revised agreement being produced by the BDAC working party.

    Key Points: Appendix A
    Management Agreement: NAMG-1004DS-REVIEW-29-05-22(DJC)

    Particular areas of concern include the lack of training and support site officers and committees can access plus the expectation that these people take on addition responsibilities.
