    An assortment of boat numbers and names would be useful, just change 'em every 24 hours!

    Perhaps we need to ask ourselves why people are calling for elections. If I am yer average, typical voter then I don't generally vote people in, I tend to vote people out. In the case of the the Authority, back in the days of Professor Aitken Clark (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/apr/19/michael-aitken-obituary) I don't recollect any calls for elections, there was no need. Are we really asking for the ability to elect, or are we asking for the ability to get rid of people who we perceive to be wrongly employed or positioned? Who should be able to vote? Members of relevant clubs and people who live and work here. It would be up to each club or association to vote for a representative. Such elections have to be entirely independent of the BA and more so the BA CEO.

    Bill, you and I both know that the present Broads Bill presents the Broads Authority with three core responsibilities as opposed to the two that national parks proper have on the statute books. It is that third responsibility, navigation, that sets the Broads apart from the Sandford Principle, that being that conservation takes precedent. We both know that, agreed? Now, very clearly, Dr Packman wishes to absorb recreational boating, and its requirements into 'recreation' thus removing navigation as the crucial third requirement. It's how it is in the Lakes District. Take away that third core responsibility and the door is open to the Broads being a National Park with the Sandford Principle. Can't make it any more plain than that, If you can bring yourself to accept that, then ask yourself why would Dr Packman wish to make this change? The answer, to most of us, is abundantly clear, CONTROL. Not only that but he would lose the requirements associated with being a Harbour Authority. Do you really and honestly believe that that would be good for Broadland? Do you not accept that it would bring fundamental changes to the Broads? Dr Packman has very clearly laid his cards on the table, he couldn't make his intentions any more clear if he tried! Is that really what you want for the Broads?

    I just hope that we never have the opportunity to say 'I told you so'.

    perhaps we should be more concerned about what is actually happening! Exactly.

    This would appear to be completely at odds with Press freedoms for one thing, even Mrs May is above & beyond the protection that JP is demanding.

    No, although I understand this might not be allowed in the future if JP's proposed draconian controls are introduced.

    I previously mentioned a draft document that was circulated within Yare House, it is now in the public domain therefor I feel free to post it: "(b) Comment: The Broads Authority is a navigation and harbour authority with responsibility for maintaining and improving the waterways under Section 10 of the Broads Act. Its third purpose is to manage the Broads for the purpose of ’protecting the interests of navigation’. This purpose was considered essential and appropriate in an era now long gone when coasters brought their commercial cargoes up into Norwich, but the city is no longer a port and now the primary use of the waterways is recreational boating. This could be seen as falling primarily under the second purpose and it may be appropriate to review the wording of the purposes and consider whether the duty to maintain the navigation area should be given greater prominence. For consideration: Whether to review the Authority’s responsibilities in relation to the recreational use of the waterways, protecting the interests of navigation and maintaining the navigation area in a way so the wording of the purposes better serves the modern use of the waterways and interests of all those with a stake in the Broads. This is the section that covers the BA's wish to cease to run a Harbour Authority." Once again I ask why should the Authority wish to cease being a navigation authority? Why should it wish to lose the Authority's third purpose?
