Congratulations to all 8 who entered and have shown how important allotments can be in the local community

The Birmingham and District Allotments Confederation (BDAC) are a voluntary body which works to ensure that allotments across the City receive the best service for allotments holders and associations. We work with allotment associations, allotment holders, City Allotment Officers and City Councillors for the benefit of allotments.


We support allotment associations with advice and information which enables them to carry out their tasks.


We act as an active 'watchdog' to ensure the City provides the maintenance and repairs for allotment sites.


We play an active part in influencing allotment policy so that any changes are for the benefit of allotment holders and associations.We encourage associations to take on self management / self help.

Organising competitions for individuals and associations.
