The campsite rating scheme has been developed by the Silverstone Inter-Agency Campsite Subgroup. We are a multi-agency group who work in partnership with Silverstone Circuits Ltd. The partners in the group are: South Northamptonshire Council, Buckinghamshire Council, Thames Valley Police, Northamptonshire Police, Buckinghamshire Fire Service and Northamptonshire Fire Service.
We work together with campsites to help ensure that accommodation for the public attending events at Silverstone circuit comply with safety, public health, licensing and other legal standards.
Campsite Ratings Guide
To achieve the ‘Silver’ rating campsites must demonstrate that they have complied with key health, safety and welfare requirements. This includes having adequate toilet provision, a fire risk assessment, emergency contingency plans and having a drinking water risk assessment. ‘Silver’ sites will be making satisfactory progress towards improving their on-site facilities and offer a safe place to stay, with security, for the duration of your event.
Any licensed activity (alcohol and/or entertainment) will be compliant with current licensing legislation.
Campsites that achieve the ‘Gold’ rating will have met all key health, safety and welfare requirements and will have demonstrated compliance with a number of our non-essential campsite standards. The campsite operators will have made available for inspection their risk assessments and emergency plans, and will have had their drinking water supply tested. They will exceed the recommended minimum sanitary facilities. You can expect the campsite to be clean, well organised, with good security, and with adequate and well maintained facilities.
Any licensed activity (alcohol and/or entertainment) will be compliant with current licensing legislation, plus there will have been no breaches of licensing legislation in the past 12 months.
The ‘Platinum’ rating will be introduced in 2015 and is reserved for those campsites that not only meet all our health, safety and welfare standards, but also go above and beyond the minimum requirements to ensure that their customers have the best possible campsite experience. Campsites achieving the platinum rating will have stewards, excellent security, and first aid provision, there will be procedures in place to ensure that all campsite facilities are kept clean and functioning throughout the event and the campsite operators will have implemented their fire, health and safety and drinking water plans to a demonstrably high standard.
Any licensed activity (alcohol and/or entertainment) will be compliant with current licensing legislation, plus there will have been no breaches of licensing legislation in the past 12 months, plus the operators have demonstrated exceptional levels of security and service regarding licensed provision.
