It has been mentioned, perhaps it is worth a mention of its own, should BA members be elected?

Should policies be set by a quango?

Jenny Morgan, the watchfull eye!

How about NO members or commitees, just people who know what there doing, left to get on with it.

A committee of one is the ultimate, provided that one man is the right man for the job.

Andy, are you suggesting that J.P. should be that man? Okay, I don't expect you to answer that one!

My suggestion is that the bulk of members of the actual Authority should be elected suplemented by representatives of the supporting committees.  The Planning committee members (if this was to be continued, personnaly I would leave to all to the District Councils) should also be elected.  Specialist committees Navigation and Environment etc. I would populate with Nominees but, with folk nominated by more local interests rather than the Secretary of State

If they (or the bulk) were elected, who would elect them? Question

Who is their constituency? People who live locally, the wider ranks of Broads users? Should it be like the block votes system, as used in a certain political party - with Commercial enterprises represented as well as individuals?

I'm not trying to be contentious - but interested in people's thoughts...

Bill -

"nominated by more local interests rather than the Secretary of State"

- where do you think the Secretary of State finds potential nominees? From consulting local interests (for the local appointments).

When it comes to local planning for the three thousand or so of us who happen to live in the Broads Authority catchment area not us!
