If it is a wet season, an event organiser maybe given two weeks’ notice from TDC that they will not be able to use the site. Therefore event organisers will need to have a contingency plan for relocating their event in the circumstance of adverse conditions. If grass  areas are damaged, the reinstatement cost for the grassed area would need to be reimbursed by the Event Organiser. There are residential properties surrounding the site. Leaflet drop is required by Event Organiser to residents. All generators must be placed away from residential properties and situated on the opposite side of the grounds
