Details

When referred to in an environmental permit, these rules will allow the operator to carry out work to repair and protect the bank using natural materials; for example willow for willow spilling, or hurdles made from hazel. The length of the river bank affected by the activities shall be less than 20 metres.

These rules do not allow the activities on or within 8 metres of flood defences; or within 50 metres of another section of the river bank that has been reinforced.

The activities shall be undertaken outside of the relevant fish breeding season.
