- The Committee was asked to consider complaint relating to the use of urine on allotment plots. RULING: The practice of applying urine directly to allotments (instead of using it to make compost) is considered uncivil behaviour – breaking Allotment Rule 51 and causing neighbouring plot holders unnecessary distress – and is therefore strictly prohibited. A summary of the Association Rules covering this (in English and in Mandarin) can be found here.
