Nomination Got Rejected - Completely disagree with reason so need more clarity if resubmitting
258 days later my nomination got rejected, know there is a backlog so the time isn't really an issue here. The decision was however, as I am usually quite detailed in my nominations.
On the email, the reason it got rejected was:
'Nomination does not meet acceptance criteria. The real-world location of the nomination appears to be on private residential property or farm, Nomination title or description is not relevant.'
On the website, the reason the nomination got rejected was:
'Private Residence or Farm' and 'Other Rejection Criteria'
Notice the difference in rejection reasons? They are not synching up. But that's a different issue entirely.
I am convinced the reviewer(s) made a mistake and/or didn't check out all the supporting evidence provided, see below.
Title of the Wayspot: Bolehill Quarry Allotments - Bolehill Rec Entrance
Country: United Kingdom
Screenshot of the Rejection Email:
Photos to support your claim:
- Attached screenshot of allotment on Sheffield City Council website following the link I supplied as supporting information.
- Attached screenshot of allotment Satellite View following the Google Maps link I supplied as supporting information.
- It is on the official city council website, link provided within original nomination (https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/home/parks-sport-recreation/allotments).
- It is listed on Google Maps as a proper place link provided within original nomination (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Bolehill+Quarry+Allotmentsfirstname.lastname@example.org,-1.5087533,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x487978a32cf8e56b:0xc3511697bb0e4f0b!8m2!3d53.3917626!4d-1.5065646) or search for 'Bolehill Quarry Allotments'
Bolehill Rec is the Recreation Ground, that is the main and only entrance to the allotment. You can see this in the supplied photo as well as the satellite view (if you zoom in and tilt, you can see the main photo supplied within the Recreation Ground) on Google Maps.
All other allotment / community gardens nominations that followed the same format was accepted fine with no issues so why is this one any different?
Need more clarity if even thinking about resubmitting this again. Got to be honest, feel kinda deflated and 2 months on from receiving rejection email only now posting this.
What more information, or supporting information, do I need? Is it meant to be this difficult? As a reviewer, thought the quality of nomination and supporting information was good enough to make an informed decision.
Anyway, any insight would be useful.
Ps. It's a shame Appeals aren't being considered right now as I don't understand why this one was rejected.
