Rother District Council proposes two bye-laws that firstly ban fishing on the beach in a designated area from 9.00 to 18.00, from 1st May to 30th September.

Secondly, they propose a bye-law that forbids fishing 'in such a manner as to cause danger, obstruction or annoyance to any person using the seashore'.  This applies to the WHOLE of Rother shoreline e.g. Pevensey Bay, Herbrand Walk, Bexhill and Pett Level to Camber.

Sussex sea anglers and their supporters say that this is unreasonable and unacceptable.  We do not accept banning groups of beach users as a constructive way of engaging with the local community or visitors to the areas, whether we are fishing, riding a horse or walking a dog.

We say NO to these bye-laws and call on the council to remove them.
