Barlaston Allotments site is self-managed by plot-holders who form the Barlaston Allotment Association.
The Association was established in 1982. It is an un-incorporated members club with an elected committee of between 5 and 7 members. The committee manages the Allotments on behalf of the members. The Association holds annual general meeting of members each year in January or February .
The Association is entirely dependent on the voluntary work of its committee members and other plot holders in looking after the site. Staffordshire County Council owns the site and lease it to Barlaston Parish Council. The Barlaston Allotment Association has a 5 year lease with Barlaston Parish Council for the site.
Barlaston Allotment Association will be seeking to renew the site lease in 2015. The lease requires the Association to manage its own administrative and financial affairs to keep the allotment plots in cultivation.
