Rivers, lakes and coast
Marginal strips are strips of land adjoining the coast, lakes larger than eight hectares in area, and rivers greater than three metres in width.
Esplanade reserves, esplanade strips and access strips
These are different legal mechanisms involving access, but there may be restrictions on their use. Check with the relevant territorial authority.
Riverbeds can be a useful form of access where water margin access is not available or not practicably usable.
Erosion and accretion
The effect of erosion and accretion on public access along water margins can be quite complicated and require expert advice.
