Dear Forum Members,

It has been drawn to my attention that Peter Waller is again suggesting that “Once again, roughly 50% of OUR toll is hived off for 'overheads'” in the other forum.
We had this debate almost exactly a year ago to the day. This prompted me to calculate the overheads on our Navigation Expenditure for 2018-19 and it was 19.1%. This 19.1% pays for essential services without which we could not fulfil our navigation responsibilities.

There is no reason to suggest that it will have changed very much for this year or for the coming year.
If anyone on this forum can post on the other one that would be appreciated.

Regards

John

It's just my opinion and others may hold a different view, but stretching a discussion over two forums is unlikely to be very satisfactory. The Broads Authority has a membership of the other forum, which could be used to post this rebuttal. Equally, Mr Waller could respond on here if he wished so to do.

If Mr Packman has any issues with any Broads forum, he should take it up with that forum rather than trying to use a third party.

Coincidently Oulton Dyke, little over a mile long, already has a good 24 hour pontoon mooring. That mooring already provides convenient access to the Angles Way long distance public footpath.

The perennial complaint from visitors to both the Northern and Southern Rivers is that there are not enough moorings - whichever way you look at it, the provision of more moorings, even if it is just one pontoon, must be a good thing. To me it is of little relevance where the money comes from, except that it is another useful facility!

I have often thought that the dyke on the corner of oulton dyke (the wider one) would if piled would make a very good mooring with grassed area for games/children with access to both the footpath (Angels way? to Beccles or Oltern for those that like to walk and the new to be bird shed/hide, it might be a place for electric posts if cost could be shared with the bird people. it would also give good access to BA for disposing of dredging spoole all at little cost, with costs that could be shared three ways.
