Background research work on the following: -

 

Hydroelectric schemes; it is vital that clubs monitor developments in their area. Whilst the Federation are not opposed to all hydroelectric schemes, it is apparent that Licence conditions being applied by NIEA will not be sufficient to protect rivers, and need to be improved.

NOTICE FOR CLUB SECRETARIES

 

Poaching

Please ensure any potential poaching issues or information is forwarded to the Federation Development Officer as set out in the forms re-issued in July 11.

 

Private Water Bailiffs

It has come to the attention of the Federation that the court service are applying the charge of £100 for the appointment or renewal of Private Water Bailiffs. These charges are in line with the guidelines, however in the interim clubs should make one application for all renewals and appointments in this way clubs will then only be charged the one fee. The Federation are currently in discussions with the various authorities to try and resolve the issue.

 

Visit by Development Officer

As in previous years I am willing to attend either a Committee Meeting or the club AGM. To discuss either the work of the Federation or hear members concerns. Please let me know well in advance and I will try to attend.
