New codes of conduct governing activities on the Exe Estuary have been launched.

It is hoped the codes, created by the Exe Estuary Management Partnership (EEMP), will encourage safe and responsible behaviour on the river.

The EEMP has worked with water users and national recreational bodies over a six-month period to update the codes, which are supported by the likes of Exmouth Coastwatch, RNLI and beach lifeguards.

They update previous advice to water and shore users, dog walkers, bait collectors and personal water craft users.

Exmouth mayor Jeff Trail, who also chairs the EEMP, said: “We have worked hard to engage with all commercial and recreational users of the Exe Estuary.

“We have listened and reacted accordingly to all groups.

“We would now wish to move forward as a partnership and hope that all users will promote the Exe and enjoy all that is on offer.”
