Calling all Dursley Beekeepers!

Calling all Dursley Beekeepers!

We would like to encourage pollinators at our Kingshill allotment site and have agreed to offer a previously disused area as a designated beekeeping plot.

The tenancy is very similar to that for an allotment plot but with some specific requirements related to beekeeping, the main ones are as follows:

· Beekeeping for enjoyment/the production of honey for domestic consumption by yourself or family members.

· Restrictions on the number of hives.

· Experience - you must be either experienced, be working towards a British Beekeepers Association (BBKA) qualification and /or have close guidance from an experienced beekeeper.

· Insurance – you must hold a relevant public liability insurance policy which provides specifically for beekeeping risk. (It is preferred that you are a member of the British Beekeepers Association, which may provide such cover for their members; or at least be a member of a local beekeeping group.)

A copy of the full tenancy is available on request. If you are a Dursley resident and you are interested in the opportunity, please get in touch with the Council office to find out more.
