It wasn't so long ago that the EA/BA/RSPB etc. were promoting the idea of a coastal retreat, creating a vast wetland, with the new line of defence at Potter Heigham. Now we have this story, seemingly it is inevitable that the Great Estuary will return. No debate, no alternatives, vast acres of Norfolk are to be gleefully abandoned to the sea. Has that been the 'vision' all along? Seemingly we humans count for very little in the great estuary scheme of things.

According to their website the purpose of the Broads Authority is to conserve and protect the area and look after the interests of people that live and work in that area.

In this case, surely the question that should be asked is what are the Broads Authority plans to implement this remit when the CEO is gleefully supporting the prediction that within the next century there shall be a return to the super estuary that existed some two millennia ago?

It appears to me that the first requirement is to staff the Authority with personnel who actually wish to honour the commitment to the published remit and not a bunch of deluded ostriches overseeing the demise of the so called "Broads National Park"!

What a legacy you shall leave Dr Packman!

Worth remembering the funding for the "Conservation " side of things comes from the Governments National Park pot & for Navigation from Tolls paid by Private & Hire Craft. The position may become clearer with the publication ( which could be soon) of the Landscape Review (Glover) Hopefully there will be further Consultation or the opportunity to comment

I thought the Glover report came out back in 2019?

To slow down the progression of the Broads changing to a salt marsh and protecting us inhabitants would involve the construction of a tidal barrier at Great Yarmouth along with improvements to sea defences along the coast. All those things have been suggested and promoted over many years, yet until we see another major surge event I can't see anything happening.
Changing sea levels and man made landscapes of the Broads has seen constant changes over millennium, it will inevitably continue to change.

The Delta Plan in the Netherlands was conceived back in 1959 just 6 years after the disaster of 1953 where both the Dutch and Norfolk coasts where decimated by the surge that occurred at that time. After that the defences at Horsey and Bacton were constructed. These were short term small projects, whereas the Delta Plan was a much much larger project and was based around the concept of reducing the length of all the much older dykes and replacing them with a much bigger but shorter system of barriers and dams. This long term plan was only completed in recent years and cost $5Billion dollars.
