Extract from a report to the next Navigation Committee meeting:

"Due to the very poor condition and continuing deterioration of the piling at Burgh Castle 24 moorings, this site has been closed to the public and the lease agreement terminated with the landowner. All Authority signs have been removed and the supply to the electricity pillar disconnected."

"..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."

Based at Brundall so been using it a couple of times a year for an early morning start to cross to the north.

Ideal for me as I use the electric post for my medical equipment.

I'm really going to miss this mooring, as I'm sure many others will.

Good Evening Paladine,
We recognise that the Burgh Castle moorings are very important and it is only because of our concerns about the safety of boaters that we have had to take the action set out in the report to the Navigation Committee. The good news is that we have recently been able to reach a verbal agreement with colleagues in the Environment Agency for their contractors BESL to re-pile the moorings. On the back of this we are looking to negotiate a longer term agreement with the landowner so that the free 24 hour moorings can be reinstated and secured for the future.

With best wishes
John

That response from JP is welcome news and I, for one, thank him for the timely post.

Thank you for your response, JP. It's always preferable to have real information, rather than the speculation that is sometimes rife.

Have you any time scale for the requisite work and re-opening? The deterioration of the piling didn't happen overnight, and I would have hoped remedial action would/could/should have been taken before the current unfortunate closure became necessary. I am mindful of the absent pontoon moorings at Boundary Farm, the provision of which appears to be no further forward than it was last year.
