Marden Parish Council undertakes risk assessments on all aspects of council responsibilities and duties.
The play equipment at Marden Playing Field & Napoleon Drive and the play trail at Southons Field are inspected bi-weekly by the village caretaker (or in his absence the Clerk/Deputy Clerk) and annually by an independent Play Inspection company. The playing field play area is also inspected monthly by Maidstone Borough Council.
External hirers of Southons Field and Playing Field must undertake their own risk assessment of the activities involved and a copy of this and their own public liability insurance to be provided to the Clerk.
A full tree audit was undertaken in April 2018 and the village caretaker undertakes a monthly check on all Parish Council owned trees, located along Rookery Path, in the Playing Field, at Southons Field and the Cemetery.
All risk assessments are reviewed annually or if anything changes in the operation of the activity
