Lifebelts

We provide and maintain lifebelts along the Council owned river bank. The lifebelts are inspected weekly for condition and repaired as needed. We work hard to ensure that should you ever need to use one, a lifebelt is available and in the best condition.

If you would like to report a damaged or missing lifebelt please contact Regulatory Services.

River Dee etiquette

When using a craft on the River Dee it is important to make sure that all users adhere to and are aware of the byelaws of the River. A full version of the River Dee byelawas can be found below.

When using the river people are also encouraged to respect/be aware of other river users for the safety and enjoyment of all. To help reduce possible conflicts and accidents a courtesy code for the river is available below.
