  8. The Applicant acknowledges that KPA's public toilet facilities are limited and that the Applicant will need to make an assessment of the adequacy of those facilities. For large-scale events and activities, the Applicant is responsible for making appropriate arrangements to hire additional portable toilets.
  9. The Applicant must pay all costs associated with any damage caused by the Applicant or guests, employees, invited and uninvited members of the public to Port Land or KPA property.

It is an express condition of the Applicant's entry to Port Land that the Applicant, for itself, its Associates and for the Applicant's and Associate’s heirs, executors, assigns and next of kin and each of them release, waive and discharge KPA and its Associates of and from all liability, claims or demands for all injuries, losses, damages of any kind or nature (including the legal costs of defending or setting any action, claim or demand on a solicitor/client basis) to the Applicant and any of the Applicant's Associates and of any minor under the Applicant or the Applicant's Associates' supervision, whilst on Port Land.
