BURBAGE Parish Council has allotments at two sites in the parish. There are more than 60 plots at the main location at Woodland Avenue, off Hinckley Road, and another dozen at Blackways Meadow, between Brookside and the railway line.

To give as many people as possible the chance of a plot, only half-plots (roughly 150 sq mtrs) are being offered to new applicants. Only one half-plot per household is allowed and all applicants must live in the parish. All tenancy agreements must be made in a single name and are non-transferable.

A deposit (currently £50) is payable, and will be refunded if the plot is handed back to the council in an acceptable state.

The allotment year runs from April 1st until the end of March, with annual rent payable from that date, or pro rata for mid-season lets.

If you are over 18 and are interested in applying for an allotment tenancy in Burbage, please use this Application for an Allotment Tenancy form to provide your details.

Alternative format forms can be requested from the parish office on 01455 637533 or by mailing

The Pat Armstrong Allotment Award was introduced in memory of a former Parish Council project officer who died in 2018.

It is awarded annually to the plot judged to be the most productive and attractive throughout the year by members of the Allotments Working Party.
