We are well aware of the demand for moorings in the Horning area but have found it really difficult to identify sites that could replace the moorings we have lost at Perci’s Island and Woodbastwick as there is not really any suitable river frontage available in the area.

We are working with the key stakeholder organisations to identify potential new mooring sites throughout the system and see if there is any way of increasing capacity at our existing sites.

As the Broads Authority does not own much land adjacent to the river we have to find landowners who are prepared to work with us and lease us land for the development of moorings and it is not always possible to do this.

We also have advice from the Navigation Committee that we should not lease land for the development of moorings if leasing the land would mean that we have to take on additional liability for piling or pay excessive rents.  We are therefore looking at whether alternative means of providing moorings can be used.

If any of the Forum Members have knowledge of potential new sites please let us know.

Why  not purchase land instead. It's an appreciating asset and nature isn't making any more

If there were suitable land at a price we could afford we might but I am not sure that toll payers would want to see the kind of tolls increases that would be required to cover such expensive land purchases.
