With the number of 24hr moorings that have recently been lost and the closure of the Woodbastwick boardwalk  how does the Authority see its Relationship with local landowners and the prospect of future negotiations.

Thanks for the question Brian,

A large number of the moorings we provide are leased from private landowners and generally we have a very good relationship with those landowners.  This is borne out by the fact that we have consistently increased the amount moorings we provide with the amount of frontage managed by the Authority with free moorings increasing from 5,969 metres to 7,730 metres at over 60 sites since the adoption of the Authority’s mooring strategy in 2006.

We continue to have productive negotiations with landowners and will hopefully be leasing over 200m of new frontage in the coming months.  From time to time we have to renegotiate leases and the majority of those leases get renewed. However, we use independent property advisors to value the land we lease and we cannot go against their advice.  A few landowners have recently been looking to derive commercial rates of income for the sites we lease and we are not in a position to agree to this.

We are continuing to work with stakeholders to identify ways of increasing mooring capacity throughout the system.
