Welcome to The Norfolk Broads Forum
This is THE Worlds Largest Forum devoted to the Norfolk Broads, here you can discuss issues about the Norfolk Broads. Or just somewhere to chat with others interested in the Norfolk Broads area.
There must be a sandpit in there somewhere which they buried their heads in when embarking on this. Reeding between the lines it looks like they went overbroad on the planting, a field sewn with wildflowers or allowing natural meadow to take hold would probably have been acceptable. Perhaps allowing a fleet of deer in would be the most economical way now to raze it to the ground and start over?
A quick check on the internet quickly establishes that buying a field does not constitute authority to turn agricultural land into a garden - neither can you by planting 300+ fruit trees suddenly make that into agricultural land again!!
Why is it that some people still do not think planning rules apply to them???
I can't understand why they have to up route the apple trees, especially as the BA Insists this has to be returned to agricultural land basically farming I suppose, so it's an orchard we grew up on a farm and guess what it was a fruit farm with orchards, so why can't they Keep the b****y Trees, gormless Broads authority, rant over.
All the best Ted.

Well done the BA. The 'right' to call yourself an 'Authority' ONLY comes when standards are maintained. The BA was completely justified in stopping this development. If you understand just where this land is in relation to the Broad and its environmental sensitivity you will see that any development here is inappropriate.
Cover it with solar panels that's the crop of choice on prime agricultural land round are way. We'll have nothing to eat but we can use the co2 we save on power production on transporting our grub from abroad simples as they say
