About us

The BDAC represents plot holders and Associations throughout Birmingham. We work closely with Birmingham City Council to provide good allotment sites and services. We provide support on site, dealing with disputes. Every Plot holder who rents a plot from Birmingham City Council is automatically a member of the BDAC.

We are here to work for you. 

If you rent an allotment plot from Birmingham City Council you are automatically a member of the BDAC. 

The BDAC Executive Committee is formed from plot holders that are proposed and elected at our Annual General Meeting. To find out who is on the Executive click on meet the executive tab. Meet the Executive Committee

The Executive meet every month to discuss allotment issues. Currently due to covid 19 meetings are suspended.

 Allotments sites in Birmingham are divided into seven areas. The BDAC appoints two advisors to each area. The advisors are all experienced allotmenteers. They are on hand to support Associations in the management of their respective sites.
