New Exe Codes of Conduct

Updated codes of conduct have been produced for the Exe Estuary to help promote a safe and responsible approach to carrying out activities in the area. The Exe Estuary Management Partnership (EEMP) in conjunction with the South East Devon Habitat Regulations Partnership undertook a review of old codes of conduct, with input from local clubs, user groups and national recreational bodies to ensure that updated codes followed existing local and national guidance.

All codes can be downloaded below, as an electronic version which can be printed on A4 paper:



Folded, printed copies of the code can be requested from the Exe Estuary Officer by emailing or are available from local recreational clubs, businesses and Tourist Information Centres.

Further information about the process undertaken to review the codes, as well as a full report of the public feedback received, can be found here.
