To apply for an allotment through Glossopdale Action for Allotments, you need to become a paid-up member of the group.
There are two types of membership:
Associate – all members without allotments are “Associate” members of the group. Associate members pay a reduced annual membership fee of £5.00 per annum (£3.00 for unwaged people). Associate members have all the same rights in the group as Full members, except that they do not rent an allotment:
Associate members are placed on GAFA’s waiting list on their day of joining and they remain on that list for as long as they maintain their membership, or more likely until they are offered an allotment. GAFA holds ONE waiting list for all of the sites that it currently manages and those it will manage in the future. When a new site opens, or allotment plots become vacant, plots are offered to members in their order on the list. Members can remain on the list for as long as they wish, or until a suitable plot is offered to them.
N.b.: Associate membership for NEW MEMBERS is reduced between 1st May-31st August each year to £3.00 (£1.00 unwaged) and from 1st September-31st October to £1.00 for all new members -with renewal of these memberships due at the AGM in November at the standard rate of £5 (£3 unwaged).
Full Membership – is £10.00 per annum (£6.00 unwaged) and is required for all members renting an allotment from the association i.e. the plotholders.
