why is the ba so keen to become a national park, or a member of the family.

What is to be gained?

Tourism lobby influence,  it has little or nothing to do with what National Parks really stand for.  Norfolk generally has seen a huge increase in wealth generation from tourism,   No bad thing of course, however what is more problematic is just how do you balance all those different pressures when it comes to wet land such as the Broads?

Hi Richard,

The Norfolk and Suffolk Broads Act 1988 gave the Broads an equivalent status to that of the National Parks designated under the National Parks and Access to the Countryside Act 1949, so the Broads is already a Member of the National Park family.

At the meeting in January 2015 the Broads Authority resolved:

that the brand “Broads National Park” be adopted for marketing related purposes with immediate effect using the powers in Section 111 of the Local Government Act 1972;

and:

in line with the suggestions from the Broads Hire Boat Federation & the Norfolk and Suffolk Boating Association, not to pursue the ambition in the Broads Plan 2011 for the Broads to become a national park in law;

Page 6 of the report for the January meeting has a table which sets out some of the benefits of using the National Park branding.

You kind find it via this link:

http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0003/525297/Branding-the-Broads-ba230115.pdf

Hope that helps.

Regards

John

So, was your use of tagline in your opening post yesterday morning "for marketing purposes" only?

To be fair Gary, it was an advertisement for The National Parks not an Advert for the Norfolk Broads National Park, I'm a massive oponent of the Broads becoming a full National Park but as JP has on a couple of threads re-confirmed that the ambition for full NP status has been abandoned the opposition to calling the Broads a National Park in name only becomes less relevant.

Dave,

I believe the tagline was along the lines of -

John Packman
CEO
Looking after the Broads national park.

I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong with the above. It also doesn't look like and advert for the National Parks if I'm correct.

The original appearance of the tag line can be found here http://www.the-norfolk-broads.co.uk/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=56&Topic=38667&srow=1&erow=11 and it was:

John Packman
Chief Executive
Broads Authority – looking after the Broads National Park

So you were pretty close, GaryCantley.

Later in that thread, after I had commented on the tag line and avatar JP used, he explained ”I didn't intend this evening to be a marketing exercise. I just copied my usual email signature and picture into my preferences.” He then apologised and removed the tag line and changed his avatar to something less controversial.

We may all have our own views on whether the use of tag line and avatar was innocent, unthinking, deliberate or whatever, but I think the reactions it provoked have not been lost on him.

John's reply is quite clear and well understood.  It is indeed  understandable that the local tourist industry needs 'Branding' The question then is, why does the Authority feel the need to take up this particular role?
It's role does include "the needs of agriculture and forestry and the economic and social interests of those who live or work in the Broads". It also has the remit of "promoting the enjoyment of the Broads by the public"
However tourisum must be balanced against its other functions. There has always been pressure on the Broads from tourisum and I find it problematic that an "Authority" appears to be taking sides with the commercial interests on the Broads.  It has never been stated that it has any role in that side of things.
