Tenancy Agreement – Data held by Luton Borough Council (LBC)

The Stockingstone Road Allotment Association works together with Luton Borough Council to manage the allotment site. LBC, as landlord, sets the tenancy agreement. When you become all plot holder you are required to sign an “Allotment Data Form” issued by the Council. LBC holds the same data as the SRAA. When a plot holder ends their tenancy and the data is not required any longer it is archived and kept for 7 years by Luton Borough Council.
