Consultation on the draft Development Management DPD – Revised Preferred Options is from 7 June to 16 July 2010.

DP24 New Residential Moorings
Applications for permanent residential moorings will be permitted provided that the mooring:

a) Would not result in the loss of visitor/short term moorings or boatyard services;

b) Is the replacement of an authorised residential mooring from elsewhere in the Broads, or otherwise contributes towards the achievement of the Broads spatial vision and strategic objectives;

c) Would not impede the use of the waterway;

d) Is in a marina or boatyard that is part of an established settlement identified for residential development by the relevant planning authority and, if more than one mooring is proposed, the proposal is commensurate with the scale of development proposed for that settlement by the relevant local planning authority;

e) Would not have an adverse impact on:
the character or appearance of the surrounding area;
protected species, priority habitats and designated wildlife sites;
the amenities of neighbouring occupiers; or
bank erosion.

f) Incorporates appropriate facilities to allow safe access between vessels and the land without interfering with or endangering those using walkways; and

g) Has adequate and safe access and provision for service and emergency vehicles, pedestrians and car parking.



Reasoned Justification

5.38 The high environmental quality of the Broads and wide range of opportunities it offers for boating make the area a popular location for houseboats. As a consequence there is a significant associated demand for residential moorings. The provision of residential moorings must however be carefully managed to ensure that the special qualities of the Broads, and their enjoyment, are protected.

5.39 Tourism makes a valuable contribution to the local economy and a statutory purpose of the Broads is to provide opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the area by the public. To ensure there are sufficient facilities to allow visitors to enjoy the Broads, the Authority will therefore resist proposals for permanent residential moorings where they would result in the loss of visitor/short term moorings or boatyard services.

5.40 To ensure the occupants of houseboats have access to adequate facilities, such as education, recreation and other community facilities and services such as domestic waste collection, and to minimise impact of new development on landscape character, the Authority will require new residential moorings to be
directed to marinas or boatyards in established settlements. The Broads Authority does not have a strategic housing function and instead applies the policies of its constituent District Council?s in relation to the provision of housing. Proposals for residential moorings will therefore be expected to be commensurate in scale with the level of residential development proposed for the settlement by the relevant local planning authority.

5.41 Residential moorings that have the potential to affect a European site or species will only be permitted where a site level Habitats Regulation Assessment can successfully demonstrate that there are no significant effects on qualifying features on the site or a detrimental impact on the species.

5.42 In order to protect visual and residential amenity and to ensure the use of residential moorings does not compromise public safety, where permission is granted for a new permanent residential mooring planning conditions and/or obligations will be used to secure agreements for the management of the mooring and surrounding land. Policy DP17 provides guidance on the forms of development that will be permissible on the adjacent waterside environment associated with a mooring.

5.43 For the purposes of this policy, a residential mooring is one in which boats are moored in one location for more than 28 days in a year. The creation of a new residential mooring or the change from any other form of mooring to residential use will require planning permission.
...................................................................................
Alternative Option DP24a:
Do not allow for any new residential moorings across the Broads area.

Alternative Option DP24b:
Allow for new residential moorings across the Broads areas, in addition to replacement moorings, including sites outside of established marinas and defined settlement boundaries.

So JillR,

Seeing as you have your finger on the pulse as it were, what are your views on the above?

Dare I say it seems on the face of it you may have a fair deal there and it could have been a lot worse, or am I not reading between the lines correctly?

Unless I am miss reading the above, it suggests that all official long term moorings are residential.

Well...I know I'm not the brightest star in the sky but I have read the BA's hugga-mugga several times and I have to admit, I found Einstein's General Theory of Relativity easier to comprehend. Confused

nice to know were all in the same boat martin, i dont feel quite so lonely now Smile

a snap decision on this one griff?

after you  Evil Grin

i typed into the BA sites search ....
Your search for spatial vision and strategic objectives returned 2124 results

http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/broads/live/search.html

each one of those is another document

as i see it ....

if this draft proposal is tweaked fine tuned and put in place and the subject is dealt with with sympathy and common sense then all could go relatively well.

ive handed on the links to peeps who know far better what to do with it than i and will wait and see what happens.

i do think that 5 weeks 5 days is a bit stingy for consultation reply dead line
