Great to hear that this much needed mooring won't be lost , these moorings are much needed for crossing breydon problems like last week when hire cruisers were held at Berney arms due to the fog and escorted over , or unsual high tide ,
But like Paladine has mentioned and did think the same, these moorings didn't get bad over night , but over a course of time , surely maitanance over the past few years would of prevented this ?

Whilst I'm no great fan of the present administration at BA HQ I really do think that in working with the EA on this one as they have they have achieved the best deal for the toll payer. Credit where it's due nice one JP. Now drop all the national park nonsense & we'll be friends again.

What's a verbal agreement worth? I'd like to think it was more than just that. Don't get me wrong, if it all comes to pass, then pats on everyone's back, but I can't see it happening, I'm afraid. Or am I a grumpy old cynic?  Frown

Whatever happens now, I'm blaming it on Brexit. Everyone else is!

Speculation alert!

The history of the 20-year flood alleviation project tells us that the EA will rip out firm flood defences (piling) in favour of softer reprofiling of the bank, if the landowner will not undertake to pay for the upkeep of the piling. I would hardly think that the Burgh Castle location lends itself to the soft approach, so it would appear that the EA will have to maintain the piling, as a flood defence, unless the defence is moved back, as it has been at Reedham Ferry.

I really can't see the EA renewing the piling out of the goodness of their heart. It will be very expensive - who will be picking up the cost, I wonder.

"..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."

The pumping station at Burgh Castle is just 100 feet or so from the river piling. That may swing the plans in favour of retaining the river defence where it is. We shall see.
