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. Grass can be affected by the usage. Events will be spaced out with two/three weeks in between enabling the surface to recover. ONLY 7 Bootfairs will be permitted in a year.
