I hope that none who object to these moorings being allocated to the Nancy Oldfield Trust, ever need its services.
http://www.nancyoldfield.org.uk/default.asp

The previous moorings below the bridge were inconvenient and access was unsafe for its clients, so the Staithe has been used to load and unload passengers for some time. The Environment Agency and the BA have granted these moorings, the Nancy Oldfield Trust have not simply 'squatted' there.
There has often been considerable difficulty in berthing to pick up and disembark its disabled passengers in the past, since some boaters have been less than understanding about the special needs of the Trust boats.

"I do however object to public moorings being used for private use"

May I respectfully suggest that those who object take their case up with the Broads Authority and the Environment Agency.

I don't think anyone is objecting to these moorings but it's the location i.e. on the water point area it's bad enough try to get in there as it is for water without losing space.

We used to have to lift wheel chairs on and off our trip boat so I know what there after.

Poppy and Gary, you are absolutely correct, "There but for the grace"
I am at a complete loss how anyone can object to this organisation who are out in all seasons being objected to!
I am at at loss as to why this beautiful area attracts such undesirables, but I am told it has always been so, I just wish they would take themselves off to Ibiza or some other place where there attitudes would be appreciated. I suggest we all report boats over 20ft in their reserved area, I have yet to see that rule observed.

It looks as though the Nav Committee agreed to Nancy Oldfield Trust swapping their existing moorings from downstream of the bridge to upstream.
This will now enable the BA to provide much needed sailing craft temporary moorings below the bridge to enable them to raise and lower their masts. For some time now, almost all of the moorings below the bridge have been taken up by either LBBY or Horning Hall Farm permanent moorings. The few visitor moorings along the Horning Hall side were usually filled with motor cruisers, with no reserved spaces for sailing craft to de-mast.

This extract is from item 5 of the BA Navigation Committee meeting held on 2 February 2012 at Ludham Field Base:

"Mooring provision downstream of Ludham Bridge – The Authority had received a draft licence agreement and the Licence between the Environment Agency and the Nancy Oldfield Trust had now been signed. This would enable the Trust to move moorings upstream of Ludham Bridge freeing up their existing moorings. Members discussed the possibility of demasting signs being erected on the vacated moorings prior to the agreement being signed. TW to investigate."


The full copy of the minutes was published at:

edit - blast...  I took so long typing that lot in that Poppy beat me to it.  It looks as though I was partly right though...  Smile

And?

Plenty more watering points around the Broads, not many points suitable for disabled people to get onto boats.

If you had read my post correctly you would have seen that I do not object to the trust or the work that they do in fact I whole heartedly support it (including financially) My objection is to WHERE they are moored.

I hope that the description "such undesirables" is not aimed at the members who have raised their concerns here about the positionof this allocated mooring?!

That seems to be this issue as far as I read it - the  location, not the Trust's need.

Before anyone begrudges use of this space, spend a few hours moored next to them as i did the other week and see the sheer joy of the passengers, young and old, as they come back from a cruise. They are enjoying a pleasure most of us take for granted.
