Can we rest assured that now this trial has ended and the results will be put before the Navigation Committee that the safety and welfare of all river users will take precedence over the commercial interests of one individual, especially as he has now closed a popular mooring to suit his own agenda.

I take it your referring to Wood bastwick mooring, how did he shut it down? did he lease it and close it? or is it explained on the other thread?

Simple answer to that...
We as toll payers are not willing to pay enough annual fee to allow the BA to take on every lease or buy every freehold mooring that comes to market.

And Woodbastwick Estates want to screw as much as they can from everything irrespective!! IF the BA gave in to outrageous demands then they would be sitting ducks!!

I agree with you there MM. But should everyone take the same route as the Woodbastwick estate , the BA would have no 24 hour visitor moorings to offer visitors amd boat owners. So, is it that negotiation skills are at fault? Or landowners perceptions of the BA budget perhaps, or simply a lack of desire to work with them? We do seem to have lost a few moorings over a short space of time so dare I suggest there may be a common denominator?

I suppose it may be simply that all came up for renewal at a similar time, but I would be interested to know how often that is? Are they all on similar lengths of lease or do they vary a lot depending, I presume, on when they became available? My broads knowledge historically is limited so I don't know how often such changes have occurred over long periods.

If you take a look at Appendix 2 of this BA report http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0006/506382/Mooring-Strategy-Update-BA211114.pdf you will see not only the year in which any lease expires, but also the priority the BA place on each specific mooring i.e.

1. Retain at all costs;
2. Keep if budget allows;
3. Could live without;
4. Can't decide.

Woodbastwick and Perci's Island fall in the 'Keep if budget allows' category. Obviously the owners pushed the rent up too much.

Ooh, thank you for that. Time for a coffee and a read....

Wonder what the criteria is for reaching a decision on which category? Thumb in the air maybe ?  Wink  Or real facts based on consultation and proper assessment?

I have a bit of a "thing" at the moment about random and often very important decisions being made (by people in responsible positions) on a bit of a whim  Frown  Not specificallly the BA, the jury is out on that one  Gasp

I understood in the first event that the question JP threads were for just that to ask the question and discussion should be on a separate thread even more so when going of on a tangent.
