I completely agree with you Steve this situation if left unchecked could very easily lead to serious damage to tourism and private boat ownership .
Yes marshman the broads are beautiful but for how long ? And not everywhere is the,same are u seriously telling me its the,same situation on the canal network , the fens etc , how on earth can u have an area of outstanding beauty n have an 17th century refuse system , it make a total joke of BA striving to create what they think is a national park and yet allowing this to happen in their own back yard .

Steve O.
For reasons of confidentiality I cannot go into the details but my work brings me into contact with lots of local authorities. Take it from me that they are being very creative in unloading their costs onto other organisations or dumping them altogether. Anything rather than cut their bloated systems.
I assume that is what is going on here.

Am I understanding this correct.

If I go to the chippy and eat in, any waste is commercial.

If I go to the chippy and take the chips to my boat that is hired, the waste is commercial.

But if I actually own the boat, or eat the chips elsewhere but either the place I bought it or on a hire boat the waste is domestic.

If I have understood that correct the situation is ludicrous.

(I picked a chippy as an example, but all waste is surely the same)

I own my own boat, I have made an investment in that boat because I like visiting The Broads. Despite the politics and attitudes of the local councils I shall not give up boating or visiting The Broads, however I am not going to be taking a weeks worth of rubbish around with me on the boat. Therefore something has to give, and it won't be me.

So where will it go? Well I've been coming to the area for long enough to know where the rubbish disposal points used to be. I'm not going to leave my rubbish on some pub garden, or remote moorings, or floating down the river, but don't be surprised to see someone walk up to where there used to be a skip, or refuse bin and deposit a bag full of rubbish and walk away.

I suggest everyone does the same, at least that way the local councils will only have a few places to go around and collect "fly tipped" rubbish, and we can keep the majority of Broadland still litter free.

Perhaps we should start a list of places where there used to be rubbish facilities as an "unofficial" guide to waste disposal locations.

As has been said, fly-tipped material becomes the responsibility of the land-owner to dispose of. Many of the sites at which bins were previously to be found were kindly 'donated' by the landowner. It hardly seems fair to saddle them with large bills because the Local Authorities have decided to remove those bins.

It might be a better idea to lobby your MP, the Norfolk County Council, the Local Authorities and the Broads Authority, to find a proper solution.

Report any fly-tipping to Broads Control and take pictures. The BA has adopted a wait-and-see policy, and, if no complaints are received will use that lack to justify sitting on their hands.

"..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."

Ladies and Gentlemen

Can we please keep the Ask JP threads brief and confined to their original purpose, there are opportunities for general discussion elsewhere.

Many Thanks Brian

Whilst I agree with not clogging up the threads, I feel there should be some way to signal our support for an objection to the way things are going (and perhaps a way of not supporting) otherwise those in power say: "Only one appears to be bothered about this, therefore it isn't important" Something like a "like!" Perhaps everyone who supports an objection could just add "support" to the thread then keep the discussion elsewhere.

Whilst I have a lot of sympathy with boaters and lack of rubbish bins I do not want you to simply dump rubbish where bins used to be.
How would you like it if people did it to your home area.

Waif,

In my home area the council still provides bins. Whether its the BA, local or county council, I don't care, but someone should be providing them around Broadland. I'm not local and don't have the time to petition the local authorities on something they should be doing. The rubbish from boats has to go somewhere. If there are no facilities what do you suggest should be done with it?
