The Olympic sailing events around Weymouth, Dorset present a business opportunity for farmers in the area as temporary campsites are needed to cope with the influx of visitors to the games.

The TFA is advising those interested to refer to their tenancy agreements and check with landlords before embarking on setting up a campsite. If the campsite is active for 28 days or more, planning permission is required. TFA briefing note T20212 provides more guidance.
