Access for Recreation

NI Water is one of the largest land owners in Northern Ireland, second only to the Forestry Service (NI), having responsibility for approximately 8,600 hectares throughout the province. A significant proportion of this land has recreational appeal and is regularly accessed by members of the public.

The Company’s latest Policy sets out the way public access arrangements are communicated and controlled, and provides the public with clear guidance that governs recreational activities and access on NI Water owned lands and waters. In addition, the Policy provides a formal application mechanism for the public to use any NI Water owned land or body of water for recreational purposes. To assist in preparation of applications an ‘Application Checklist’ has been provided in the appendices.
