Codes of Conduct

The Humber Estuary is a valued open space used by many people for recreational activities. It is also highly valued for wildlife. The diverse range of users of the estuary often leads to increased pressure the environment care is needed to safeguard the area's natural resources and wildlife, whilst encouraging people to use the area responsibly and safely.

The original Humber Codes were published in 2005 and written by the Humber Advisory Group. Individuals and clubs are encouraged to support them.

The first review updated the codes in 2009. If you would like a copy of the Humber Codes of Conduct for you or your club/group, please use the contact us page to get in touch. Alternatively, a PDF of the document can be downloaded from here.

If you would like to comment on any of the codes, please contact us and your comments will be considered when the codes are next reviewed.

The purpose of the Humber Codes is to promote the responsible use of the estuary and its environs, whilst providing a safer environment for both local people and visitors to enjoy.
