To all Members:
Although we have put in place comprehensive measures to allow the safe resumption of fishing at Hallington, Northumbrian Water informed us this afternoon (Monday) that they are unable to permit any fishing on any of their waters.
The Company says it “needs consistency across ALL of their waters” and because of concerns that have been expressed about other waters they have decided that they cannot permit ANY fishing on any of their waters. The internal decision making process within Northumbrian Water has now been referred up to senior management.
We do not know when a decision will be reached, and we will update you as soon as we receive any new information. Meanwhile, we respectfully request that you refrain from emailing Westwater with individual queries, to ensure that what we do send out is consistent and available to all members.
