Bimble Camp Code of Conduct
- One named member of the organisation (the “rally marshal” or “responsible person”) is to be responsible for the conduct of any exempted touring caravan or camping event and for ensuring that those attending comply with this code.
- The responsible person must ensure that all members are aware of The Countryside Code, The Caravan Code and The Seashore Code
- The Venue
- The organisation will take reasonable steps to satisfy themselves that the site to be used is not subject to a relevant order under paragraph 13 of the First Schedule to the 1960 Act (for caravans), or an Article 4 direction under Schedule 2 to the Town and Country Planning (General Permitted Development) Order 1995 (for caravans and camping), and that it is not one where planning permission has been refused or where enforcement action has been taken.
- The organisation will consult the local authority before meeting on land adjacent to sites for which planning permission has been granted (i.e. next to permanent or commercial sites).
- The organisation will agree to move from and avoid any site to which the local authority maintains a valid objection.
- The organisation will not meet on sites adjacent to certificated locations/sites unless the proposed site is clearly differentiated and the risk of interference with local people and other users is minimal.
- The organisation will take reasonable steps to ensure that the siting of units (a caravan, motor home, tent or trailer tent) does not unduly interfere with the activities of local people, their privacy or their enjoyment of their property. They will also ensure that the siting of units does not interfere with the enjoyment by others of the landscape, natural beauty or nature conservation value of the area, particularly in areas designated for their landscape or wildlife qualities.
- The organisation will undertake not to over-use any venue and will consider carefully before holding successive meetings on the same land.
- Local people should be able to carry on their normal activities when meetings are in progress. The organisation will take reasonable steps to minimise disturbance and will investigate and deal with the causes of any complaints made.
- Care should be taken not to damage the site or the surrounding locality. Trees, fences, buildings, equipment and stock should all be respected.
- Domestic animals belonging to members of the organisation will be kept on a lead and under close control. They will not be allowed to run loose on the site or cause disturbance to local people or animals. They will be exercised away from units and those parts of the site used for communal activities. Any mess will be cleared up.
- The responsible person will identify open space suitable for the playing of games which might otherwise intrude upon or constitute a danger or annoyance to others on or around the site.
- Noise should be monitored to ensure local people are not caused undue disturbance.
- Road Safety and Access
- The responsible person will take steps to ensure that travel from major roads to a proposed site is not likely to cause undue disruption or difficulties for other road users. Access to the site must be suitable for the number and likely size of units attending the meeting. The arrival and departure of units should be arranged to minimise disruption to other road users.
- The speed of vehicles on the site should be restricted to 5 mph.
- Spacing and Density
- For health and safety purposes emergency vehicles must be able to gain access to the site. The responsible person shall ensure that 3m wide fire lanes are maintained throughout the site to ensure that emergency vehicles can access all areas of the site. Emergency vehicles should be able to secure access at all times to within 90 metres of any unit on the site.
- Where a site is being used by both caravans and tents then cars must be sited entirely separately for health & safety reasons. Ideally cars should be located in a separate field, but if the layout of the site does not allow for this a dedicated parking area will be designated. Once a caravan or camping equipment has been dropped off the car should immediately be moved to the parking area. Cars should not be allowed access on site once the event has been set up. For larger gatherings cars will not be allowed to drop off camping equipment onsite, campers will need to carry their equipment from the parking field.
- Fire Precautions
- Open fires and barbecues will be held with the permission of the responsible person. Where permission is given for open fires or barbecues, they will be sited on open ground, away from units, vehicles, awnings and any other structures.
- A fire extinguisher approved to British Standards Institute and/or Fire Officers Certificate standards will be held on site. For larger gatherings fire points will be positioned at relevant points with water buckets and/or fire extinguishers.
- Chemical Toilets and Waste Water Disposal
- Organisations will act responsibly when disposing of the contents of chemical toilets and waste water and take full account of the need to safeguard water supplies and prevent the pollution of rivers and streams.
- On-site disposal of the contents of chemical toilets and waste water will be in accordance with arrangements agreed with the site owner/occupier. Neither will be allowed to foul the ground except at designated disposal points. If there is any doubt about the disposal of waste, the organisation or, if appropriate, the responsible person will contact the relevant Local Authority for advice.
- Sites will be encouraged to provide compost toilet facilities and users will be encouraged to use these facilities rather than using any chemical toilets they may personally own. Chemical Toilets must never be emptied into a compost toilet.
- Refuse disposal
- Recycling should be promoted and organisations should ensure that refuse is either taken home and recycled or recycled in accordance with on-site arrangements. The responsible person should be satisfied that appropriate arrangements are in place.
