Water and river safety

The district has many public open spaces which have, or are near to, inland water which include rivers, locks, streams, lakes and ponds.

One of the tasks of our parks ranger is to maintain the 20 life belt stations alongside the River Trent (from Gunthorpe to Carlton on Trent) and River Devon.

If you notice a problem with a life belt station please report this to our customer services team on 01636 650000 or e-mail customerservices@nsdc.info

If you see a lifebelt out of its station, please put it back. Anyone seen removing the belts should be reported to the police.
