Thought the " flood alleviation scheme" was to stop properties on the Yare and Bure from Flooding? So they took all those nice " wild mooring" places out and replaced them with earthen banks and ditches and ponds that I can't get anywhere near to, all for nothing? Has anyone seen the erosion on The Yare side of Haddiscoe island? Correct me if  I'm wrong, but my schoolboy geography taught me that rivers want to go straight and if you don't want them cutting the bank away you protect said bank with a quay or piling....  Like what used to be on Haddiscoe Island.... Then the " flood alleviation scheme" came along and all piling/ quay was ripped out and replaced with an earthen bank and they built foot bridges over the channels so flooding could happen in nice pre made catchment areas. Now the Yare is shallower and the bridges are like little monuments on concrete plinths that walkers can access because the river has eroded the banks. Surely someone on the planning committee took school boy Geography and knows how much power a tidal river has? How much is Breydon Silting up because of this erosion? How long before Haddiscoe farmers are having to re pile the river banks to protect their land? Or was that the plan? Take piling out so farmers will have to put it back and pay for its upkeep? Of course it's a win win then for the council as it will need planning authority for the work too..... Maybe I AM too cynical! Thought this should come under the flooding topic as its still happening despite all that work to stop it! It's probably the wrong type of rain!!!
