Rules and Guidelines

We have a few rules that we ask all members and visitors to follow. These are in place for the benefit of everyone.

Please note that these rules are just a subset of the Caravanning and Camping Club rules that every member agrees to when they join the club.For more information please see your Big Sites Book or the Club Handbook.SITES OPENING AND CLOSING TIMES
Please do not arrive at any site before 12:00hrs, unless prior arrangement has been made with the steward. The steward MUST be the first person on site to comply with the Camping Exemptions Certificate.

SITES FEES
Different areas have different rules on when your site fees should be paid. Some areas pay on arrival, others on departure. Please check with the Steward on site upon your arrival.

SPEED LIMITS
While on site respect a 5 MPH speed limit. This is to protect the field, our children, and our pets.
No Learners or underage drivers are permitted to operate vehicles whilst on site.

REFUSE
Unless otherwise specified, All waste must be taken home and disposed of via your home refuse system. Temporary Holiday Sites will provide refuse disposal for those onsite.

PETS
Pets are welcome at all our meets, provided
• All Pets (Cats and Dogs) must be on leads at all times (unless constrained within your own unit!)
• Any mess must be cleared up immediately and disposed of properly.
• Dogs should not be near the drinking water points.

GENERATORS
Please remember that we are all members of the ‘friendly club’ and to be both courteous and considerate to fellow campers when using generators on all rallies.

Generators should always be located adjacent to your own unit, and not in an area where they could cause any inconvenience or danger to other members and MUST NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES be left running unattended.

Derby DA rules are that generators may be used between 10:00hrs and 12:00hrs unless prior arrangements have been made with the steward or for health reasons. This will vary with other DA’s.

Please remember that the steward of the meet has the right ask you to silence your generator if it is causing a noise nuisance to your neighbours. At some locations there may be additional restrictions on the use of Generators, please check with the Steward on site.

WATER AND CHEMICAL TOILET WASTE
Drinking Water and Elsan (toilet cleaning/emptying) points will always be clearly labelled. However if you cannot identify one, please ask the steward. Under no circumstances must you take any part of your toilet to the drinking water taps.

AQUA ROLLS In the interests of safety please when filling your aqua roll do not tow it behind your vehicle to or from the water filling point.

FIRE REGULATIONS
Inline with the Caravan and Camping Clubs Policy, it is recommended that you have a filled fire bucket outside their unit. Units will be well spaced and sited so that they do not restrict access to, or exit from any unit or the area in case of emergencies.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING GAS CYLINDERS
Inline with legislation on the use of external gas cylinders
Following the instructions issued on Green paper 3.1(version 2) issued June 2008 which insists that no cylinders with a capacity greater than 15kg will be allowed at any club event of any kind to supply touring caravans, motorhomes, tents or BBQ’s.

The use of any size cylinder to supply gas via a gas BBQ point is not permitted. We also insist that any cylinder external to the unit is staked or attached to the unit in a secure manner as to prevent tilting. To save any embarrassment, please do not break these rules.
Persistent offenders will be asked to leave the site Thank you

THE ‘6 METRE RULE’
The 6 Metre rule replaced the 20 foot rule which was the imperial version of it.

This is just the minimum space which should be allowed between all units on Camping and Caravanning Club sites whether they are D.A or THS


Please note that failure to respect these rules may result in you being asked to leave site.

ANY INFRINGEMENTS WILL BE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE STEWARD,
AND THAT THEIR DECISION IS FINAL.

THANK YOU

All DA meets are organised in accordance with the Code of Conduct for the Organisation of Meets which is printed in full in the Club Handbook.
