1.3 Timings to consider

< Back   Event Checklist   View map

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.

There can also be environmental sensitivities at particular times of the year, such as bird breeding seasons and grey seal pupping. The Pembrokeshire Marine Code promotes codes of conducts relating to marine wildlife and includes maps showing areas sensitive to marine wildlife.

Weather can also present challenges when choosing the best time and place to hold an active outdoor event.  An area/location that could be perfect in dry weather could present substantial challenges/risks to both participants and the environment when dealing with wet weather conditions.

Addressing wet weather alternatives for both areas/routes and event timings should be considered in the research and consultation stage.
