For those of you who were speculating about the shop and moorings at Acle Bridge, this has been announced today also -
"Acle Bridge Moorings

Today, (4 August 2017), we have completed the purchase of 620 metres of river frontage at Acle Bridge. 200 metres of the river bank is piled and the majority is in reasonable condition. Just over 40 metres will need attention sooner rather than later. The value of this location is that we shall be able to provide free 24 hour moorings for visitors together with a demasting solution for Acle Bridge. The site has further potential, as and when funds become available, to provide additional facilities such as waste disposal, pump-out of chemical toilets, car parking and possibly a slipway. The buildings on the site are tired and in a neglected state, and over the coming weeks we will be assessing what to do with them."

There are some very nice and well-thought out designs there...if you happen to live in Notting Hill or Kensington. For the Broads, totally out-of-character, intrusive and quite pointless. If any of the designs shown gets approval, it will open the floodgates for developers. If the BA can drive a coach and horses through their own planning policies, others will expect to be able to do so as well.

Looking at the designs, I struggle to see how you can describe them as "pointless" Pally! They seem to have lots of angular points!

It seems to me that the designers were issued with a ruler, a pencil and a sheet of paper, and that they are unable to draw curves. I would wager that a primary school class, given the same equipment, would come up with more suitable designs. Any primary school teachers on here who would like their class to take up the challenge? I'd happily provide the pencils, rulers and paper.

I really like the "long house" design and also the "sail" design.

A modern design with a nod to the traditional.

We don't, and I do not, want to live in a "chocolate box" museum. So it's good to see some innovative designs considered.

Whatever happened to ”...conserving and enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Broads”?

I have no doubt that people, other than forumites and the usual suspects, will be watching this very closely.

Browsing though the Local Plan (as one does), I note that Policy HOR5, which relates to Horning Sailing Club, says, inter alia:

"...particular care will be taken to limit the height, bulk and extent of building to retain the general openess of the area in which the club is located..."

What's sauce for the goose...

Love 'em or loathe 'em, the designs are what they are. How the ones which have been published fit into the BA Development Policies I can't really understand.

Here are some extracts from those development policies, the full text of which can be read here.

Policy DP4 Design

Relationship to surroundings and to other development: Development proposals must complement the character of the local area and reinforce the distinctiveness of the wider Broads setting. In particular, development should respond to surrounding buildings and the distinctive features or qualities that contribute to the landscape, streetscape and waterscape quality of the local area.

Density, scale, form and massing:

The density, scale, form, massing and height of a development must be appropriate to the local context of the site and to the surrounding landscape/streetscape/waterscape character.

Development proposals are not designed in isolation from their context. Although there is considerable variation in local architectural styles, buildings in the Broads are typically of simple construction, often from lightweight materials, and of a scale which blends with their natural surroundings.The density, scale and mix should be compatible with the character of the local area and avoid adverse impacts of development on views, vistas and skylines.

Policy DP8 Renewable Energy

Renewable energy proposals should be of a scale and design appropriate to the locality and should not, either individually or cumulatively, have an unacceptable impact on the distinctive landscape, cultural heritage, biodiversity or recreational experience of the Broads.

Policy DP14 General Location of Sustainable Tourism and Recreation Development

Tourism and recreational facilities in the open countryside will be permitted only where there is a clear and demonstrable need for the facilities to be situated in the open countryside and where they:
(a) Are in accordance with the Core Strategy and other policies of the Development Plan;
(b) Do not involve a significant amount of new built development;
(c) Do not adversely affect, and wherever possible contribute positively towards, the landscape character of the locality;
(d) Do not result in an adverse effect on the integrity of a protected site or protected species; and
(e) Would not compromise existing tourism or recreation facilities in more sustainable locations.

Due to the potential impact on the openness and special character of the landscape, facilities in the open countryside will only be permitted where the scale of built development would not have an adverse impact on the character of the local area and special qualities of the landscape.

Policy DP27 Visitor and Community Facilities and Services

Applications for the change of use or redevelopment of an existing community, visitor or recreational facility or service that meets a local need or contributes to the network of facilities through the river valleys will only be permitted where:
(a) There is an equivalent facility available in the locality or one is made available prior to the commencement of redevelopment, to serve the same need; or
(b) It can be demonstrated through a viability assessment that the current use is economically unviable.

Development of new buildings, the extension of existing buildings or the use of land to meet a need for local community uses and facilities will be permitted provided that:
(c) An assessment can demonstrate a need for the facility and that it will support the social viability of a community;
(d) Location within the Broads can be justified and that it would not conflict with other policies of the Development Plan;
(e) It would not adversely affect protected species or habitat, nor have an unacceptable impact on landscape character; and
(f) The facility is in a sustainable location, accessible by a choice of transport modes.

Facilities which are educational in nature or relate to the promotion of the conservation of the Broads environment will be supported.
