Some allotment sites throughout the UK are currently asking their plot holders to complete a questionnaire regarding their race and religion.
But for the plot holders in Lincoln they are also being asked by the city council if they are gay. The new questionnaire is being sent to residents when they apply for their allotments.
Fred Hyde, 61, of the Local Allotment Holders’ Association, said: ‘It’s damned intrusive. Why do they want to know all these details? All these people are doing is trying to grow some fruit and veg. If I got one through, I’d send it right back and would be advising my members to do the same.’
