Page Description Keywords (ALL)
1.1 Areas, locations, routes and activities The National Park Authority welcomes events that get people active, help people to understand and enjoy the special qualities of the National Park and contribute to the economic and social sustainability of the area. areas, locations, routes, activities, events, outdoor, recreation, character,

1.2 Discuss proposals Landowners really appreciate early discussions about events and can assist organisers considerably by calling on their wealth of knowledge and experience. Event organisers need to allow sufficient time for liaison with all the interested parties. Early engagement and communication is key to any successful event. To find out who owns the land you would like to use for an event, use the National Land Registry website. landowners, permission, discusion, organisers, even, guidance,

1.3 Timings to consider There are a variety of land management activities that take place on a seasonal basis that should be considered, such as calving, lambing, harvesting crops, silage or haymaking. It is always best to discuss timing of events with the land owner. timings, landowners, land, management, harvest, environment, seasons, bird, breeding,

1.4 Consider other events Another element that needs to be considered is whether there are other events taking place on the same day and what the impacts of that might be for participants, spectators, landowners, other users, accommodation providers, available parking, traffic and any other related services. events, guidance, spectators, landowners, outdoor, active,

1.5 Obtain landowner’s permission You should always liaise with the owner of the land where your event is planned. It may not always be necessary for you to obtain every landowners permission (for example, if you are holding a walking activity along a public footpath). Listed below are some of the situations where you must gain permission from the landowner. landowner, permission, land, management, sssi,

1.6 Decide whether to hold the event After taking into consideration appropriate areas, locations, routes and activities, discussing proposals with landowners, timings, other events and if permission is required; it's a good time to take stock of your plans and make a decision to move on to stage two or change your plans. event, outdoor, guidance, active,

2.1 Prepare an Event Plan Once it has been decided that the event will take place, the planning and execution stage can begin. Many event organisers use an Event Plan which is a very useful way of confirming all concerns have been considered and all involved have a clear understanding of their role and responsibilities. The Event Plan also ensures that preparation is on schedule and completed in a timely manner. It is recommended that an Event Plan is drawn up for all events. event, plan, execution, outdoor, active, guidance,

2.2 Health and Safety A crucial part of planning any event is the consideration of all aspects of health and safety. This includes people taking part and people who will, or could, be affected. Possible groups that should be considered during the event include participants, organisers, spectators and other visitors to area. Each event will need to be assessed by the event organiser with its particular circumstances taken into consideration. health, safety, event, outdoor, guidance, insurance,

2.3 Further approvals needed? The type, size and location of the event will influence which bodies and organisations you need to contact. cymeradwyaeth, bellach,

2.4 Notify stakeholders and promote event Once landowner approval has been given, promotion for the event well ahead of time helps raise the profile of the event and can encourage community support and participation. notify, stakeholders, promote, event, outdoor, events, guidance,

2.5 Maximise benefits The Authority is keen to encourage people to use the National Park as a place to help them adopt a lifestyle that includes regular, moderate exercise. This can have huge benefits to an individual’s health and we encourage events which appeal to everyone in society. maximise, benefits, local, economy, promote, sustainable, transport,

2.6 Brief participants Now that you have a well organised Event Plan, it is important that the participants know the information that is relevant to them in good time. It is good practice to give the participants a brief of any relevant information including codes of conduct and local specific sensitivities before and on the day of the event. event, plan, participants, codes, conduct, guidance,

2.7 Brief all other relevant parties It is good practice to communicate your event plan with all relevant parties shortly before the event to ensure everyone a clear understanding of responsibilities, timings and possible effects of the event. brief, relevant, parties, event, plan, communication, landowners,

2.8 Hold the event Hold the event. Once you've held the event please be sure to follow the steps in Stage three: Restoration and review. hold, event, outdoor, active, event, guidance,

3.1 After the event When the last participant has crossed the finish line the work is not complete. Tidying up as soon as possible after the event is essential. Event organisers should ensure that all rubbish is cleared away, recycled where possible and that signs and any other temporary infrastructure are removed. after, event, tidying, recycling, returning, rubbish, restoration,

3.2 A Thank You It is amazing how much showing appreciation of all involved and affected can mean to people. Taking the time to thank those individuals and groups can make a big difference in the feeling of the outcomes of the event. events, guidance, outdoor, active,

3.3 Reviewing It is good practice to obtain feedback from participants and all groups that could have been affected, after the restoration work is complete but soon enough so that everyone remembers the main elements of the day. feedback, reviewing, outdoor, events, guidance, active,
