I also think allottments are important part of the community and should not be built on

Tend to think some councils might engineer no use , so they can build on , or am I being syndical !

I use fresh horse manure on my plot , they reckon 12 months , it does seem to vary 

Spread over various beds over winter it rots down nicely and hoed it occasionally , breaks down nicely

Fruitcake , yes I can understand your concerns , if it is well fed perhaps it will leave your chickens alone but who known! I bet his rabbits are well caged 

I read some where that you can stop baggers coming into your garden with human urine , would if it works with foxes ?
