This form provides the information the District Commissioner requires to APPROVE an event to take place (i.e. POR 9.1b/9.1c). The Permit holder is responsible for ensuring that the District Commissioner is informed about each section attending a nights away event (even a District or County event). For all Nights Away events the information below should be submitted 7 days before the event (in normal circumstances). Please ensure that your GSL /DESC is also aware of the event.
This form also enables a nights away permit holder to notify the District Commissioner of an event (in line with POR9.57n).
It is recommended that the permit holder also remind themselves of their responsibilities, including immediate access to someone who has a current First Aid qualification (POR9.56), recommended minimum ratios (POR3.7-3.9), the requirement for risk assessments before and during every activity (POR9.4) and requirements around personal enquiries and disclosures for all adults involved in an overnight activity (POR3.26 and POR4.28).
