Water Safety Zones Statement

We are aware that four grab bars were removed from a section of bank on the Lee last week.

This was done without our knowledge or authority and we have informed the Rowing Club that such actions are unacceptable. Safety is our first priority, and we will ensure that any safety measures required to help people exit the water in an emergency at this location are reinstated as soon as possible.

The Trust puts equal weight on the safety of all river users and will continue to manage the waterways to ensure all users can enjoy the benefit of being on the water safely.
