Whilst we (I) are pleased BA has joined the debate has there been any progress on boat waste at public moorings or is it likely to get worse as other councils remove provision.

I am pleased to say that the current talks to solve this thorny issue were instigated by us. The members of the Authority approved a draft policy on waste at its meeting on 30th September, which has identified the minimum provision necessary across the Broads to enable a strategic network to be retained, and enhanced where possible.

At the Authority’s request the local councils have agreed that they will support these sites through a partnership approach, and negotiations are underway with several parish councils to try and secure the way forward at a number of key sites.

We are hopeful therefore that there will be no further removal of sites, and the long term future of existing sites can be secured. The councils have also agreed that we should adopt a joined up approach in raising the issues with Defra when the waste regulations are reviewed, due in 2016, and we are pleased that through the recent discussions initiated by the Authority a better understanding of the issues has been reached by all parties and an agreed position adopted.

We are pleased to have had the support of both Brandon Lewis MP and Norman Lamb MP in dealing with this thorny issue.
