River Thames

As the fishing season has restarted on the River Thames, Spelthorne Borough Council are reminding residents and visitors using our waterways to fish of the bye-laws associated with this practice.

No tents or any other structure used for camping may be setup outside of designated camping areas. No fires, including BBQs, can be lit unless authority is granted by the Council. All litter should be removed or risk receiving a fixed penalty notice or community protection warning letter. The Council have received numerous complaints from residents in relation to the above anti-social behaviour.

The Community Safety team have been patrolling the areas of concern, notably the Old Bathing Station and Rivermead Island, and have issued nine community protection warnings for all of the above offences.
