Canoe Wales does not formally recognise the current Dee access arrangements http://www.welshdeepartnershipltd.co.uk/river_access because they do not meet our criteria for 'fair agreements for responsible, shared use' of the rivers. Nevertheless we will be seeking to influence the Welsh Dee Partnership to consider more equitable arrangements that meet paddlers' needs (and which are without prejudice to the differing views of the legal position). I would welcome forum members' views about the existing arrangements.

There cannot be a licence where there is a right of navigation, any more than there can be a licence to use a public footpath. But canoeists and kayaks who want to support improvements on a voluntary basis can join Canoe Wales.
