General Information Regarding the Hire of College Premises
(Please read carefully before application is made)
College premises may be used subject to availability and the agreement of the Principal and College Corporation.
Under the Education Act (No.2) 1986, the College is required to take such steps as are reasonably practicable to ensure:
The College however, is under no legal obligation to hold meetings on its premises which are open to the outside public.
The College reserves the right to refuse an application where the use would be in direct competition with the College.
Within the context of "freedom of speech”, it is unlawful to incite an audience to violence, breach of the peace or racial hatred. Speakers are also subject to the laws of blasphemy, obscenity, sedition, treason, the official secrets legislation, defamation and contempt of court and Parliament.
It is strongly recommended that HIRERS have appropriate insurance cover
e.g. Public Liability Insurance. Whilst every reasonable precaution is taken, Lancaster & Morecambe College does not hold itself responsible for loss or damage to any property or vehicle.
Lancaster & Morecambe College endeavours to provide a healthy and safe environment for all persons using the College premises.
It is essential therefore, that all activities undertaken within College premises comply with all relevant health & safety requirements, this includes College Lettings.
Organisations hiring College facilities must ensure that all planned activities are conducted in a safe manner and that appropriate arrangements have been made to ensure this.
