Saffron Walden Town Council have requested that the location of the proposed geocache is provided to them to ensure that the cache is not treated as litter.

Application Process

Permission: When placing a geocache, you must seek the permission of the Saffron Walden Town Council via the details above.

Labelled: Ensure the geocache container is clearly marked, stating that the content is harmless and giving the placer's e-mail address or other contact method (eg GAGB contact phone number).

Family safe: Only items that would be deemed safe and acceptable for an unaccompanied child to find should be placed in a geocaches

No perishables: No items of food or drink of any kind should be placed in the geocache

Hidden: Geocaches should be placed in a way that they will not be accidentally found by non-geocachers and there should be no visual sign of disturbance.

Respect the land: Geocaches should not be buried. Holes should not be dug to place a geocache. Also, geocaches should not be hidden in animal holes or runs, and fences should never need to be climbed to access the site (other than through a gate or by a stile)

Parking: If parking is not obvious, consider adding a waypoint to indicate a good parking location, to minimise the chance of seekers attempting to drive in unsuitable locations

Maintenance: Maintenance of the geocache is the responsibility of the placer (cache owner)
