Good news !! I got the go ahead to have bees on the allotment. The start of a new era, beekeeping close to home.
Now I need to clear out the shed and paint it, then finish the netting enclosure, create a level base of the hive (currently on a slight slope), etc, etc… Then I need to swap hives around to get some friendly bees on site; the last thing I need is to move bees in that are less than compatible with nearby people.
Wish me luck
