Your Borough Of Poole



It is your role to ensure that all caterers have been registered by their local authority and they hold current caterers’ food hygiene certification.  Mobile catering stalls handling raw food, should have hot water hand wash facilities.  We recommend caterers have a Food Standard Agency rating of 3 or above.

Catering concessions already exist at the following sites:

• Baiter • Branksome Chine Beach  *

• Hamworthy Park • Poole Park *

• Sandbanks Beach  *• Upton Country Park

• Whitecliff

* These concessionaires must be offered the opportunity to provide catering for your event before other contracts are agreed.

Catering must be sensibly positioned away from children’s activity areas and near to water supplies and waste bins, etc.  Adequate space (a minimum of 3metres) should be left between catering facilities to prevent any risk of fire spread.

BBQ catering is permitted by professional caterers on a limited number of event sites. Disposable Barbeques are not permitted on open green space sites.  Please consult the Community Events Team for further information.  

For details of the catering operator at these sites, visit www.poole.gov.uk/cateringconcessions
