Please use the Form on this page to apply for a plot of your own.

The last two fields are for existing plot holders who wish to transfer and these are not mandatory.

Advantages to
Joining Us?

If you choose to join us then you can enjoy the benefits of working with the land, revel in the advantages of fresh produce, delight in the healthy exercise and appreciate the recreation, leisure and happiness that an allotment can give you. If all this sounds like you, then get in touch with us. You can use the online Application Form above to do this.

As we all know working a plot is a lot of effort and if you are you really ready for all the hard work and it has to be said the heartache that this will involve, (there I’ve said it) then this really could be the place for you.

It is however, not all a bed of roses. As with the good times there are always a few unpleasant ones. Such as when the mice eat everything you have sown and slugs eat all you have planted; then there is the wind and the rain and the Pigeons…. Oh the Pigeons!!!

So why do we do it, more to the point why on earth would you want to do it?

Well, it is great fun playing in the earth, there is nothing more satisfying than to plant something from a small seed, to watch it grow, to care for it, to nurture it and then to eat it!!

If you really feel that this is for you; then God, (or some other deity), help you, you will probably need it…..

You can use the form below to apply for a plot; or to get in touch with us, use the form on the Contact Form page for any general enquiries.

Associate Members

We currently have both Full and Associate Membership available, we utilise Associate Membership when there is a wait for plots or for people who just want a taste of “allotmenteering”. Associate Members of the Association work with an existing plot holder and help tend their plot. This can be a great help to both parties as we occasionally have plot holders who would like a hand working their plots and as such Associate Members of the Association are encouraged as it gives an idea of how much work is involved.

Contact the Lettings Officer using the Contact Us page.

Benefits of being an Associate Member of the Association include :-

  • Save on your gardening sundries
  • Support Burley Model Allotments Association
  • Support a local organisation
  • Support the Annual Vegetable and Flower Show

Please contact the Lettings Officer for full details regarding both Full and Associate Membership of the Burley Model Allotments Association.

What Size Plot do you Need?

The size of the plots we have can vary from small beds for beginners to large plots suitable for feeding a family. Our aim is to make space for as many members of the Burley Model Allotments family as possible. Ours is a small but friendly community and we hope you will join us here.
