    I also think JM does good work in bringing to our attention these matters and have said that before. I have a differing opinion on this particular clause though and if that's what you are referring to in the quoted text above I don't see it.

    I fully understand what you are saying but you are being selective with your words in the proposed amended clause. You have to use maintenance alongside 'improvement and development' (inclusive). So to use your analogy if the Authority decide there is no reasonable need to dredge a particular area surely that CANNOT be argued with any amount of reasonableness to be an improvement or development. I’ve mentioned this a few times as have others am I misreading it?

    I thought the navigation area is set out in the BA Act 1988 and can only be changed by a formal process which the BA can propose?

    Given the proposed wording could the BA reasonably argue that this is maintaining, improving and developing the said navigation? So have we any current comeback on this? and would the new wording not be better for us?

    That's pretty much what I'm saying in that 'Maintenance, Improvement and Development' are inclusive so it's not just maintenance. Out of the 2 versions the current 1988 version and this proposed version I'd opt for this one

    The Authority's Response To The Glover Report.

    I don't feel there is anything wrong with 2 (1) (c) and judge some of the comments above as taken in part and not the whole of the statement. The last part which has been highlighted and commented upon HAS to be taken in context with the whole statement which clearly states 'protecting the right of navigation through the maintenance, improvement and development' . The latter part 'as appears to the Authority to be reasonably required' is a legal way of watering this down so as not to be specific yet what its watering down is the maintenance, improvement and development NOT the degradation or failing of such rights. So lets say some part of the navigation is not maintained or improved or developed and in fact falls in to some sort of decay would BA really have any protection in this statement... the answer is no because they could not say they have maintained or improved or developed said part of the navigation and reasonableness wouldn't come into it. I obviously have a different viewpoint than some on here but its still my opinion of that statement... however I do agree it could be written in a clearer less ambiguous manner to either placate or incense the naysayers

    Yes I have no problem with it being shared. The only limit is 40 concurrent viewers so hopefully it won't max out
