That provided an interesting read. A certain B. Eason sent in a rather critical response, which is worth reading. It's on page 6 of the first document in the list (consultation responses received).

Part of the BA's reply was (emphasis added): "Visitors to the area: One of the statutory purposes of the Broads Authority is to promote visitors to the area and the Local Plan has policies on tourism that support visitors to the area. The Broads Authority has an adopted Tourism Strategy that relates to marketing and visiting the Broads."

Erm, sorry, no. The second of the BA's statutory duties is: "promoting opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the Broads by the public," NOT promoting visitors.

The Act of Parliament which says that has only been in operation for 30 years. You'd think the BA would know what it says by now.

"..for the avoidance of any doubt, the broads are not legally a national park and do not come under the national park legislation, and nor will they."
