Terry, thanks for the reminder re the move to Yare House. JP's justification was twofold, what would be saved by moving from Dragonfly House and what it cost to furnish and adapt the building to the Authority's needs. Mustn't forget the costs for three officers to stay in London whilst searching out fixtures, fittings and plush office furniture. The man was like a kid in a sweet shop with a bottomless debit card!

JR, I remember what he said, the cost saving in no way explains the cost in moving it try's to justify it. I'm not sure how many people are employed actually in HO but lets be generous and say 35 (I'm sure its much less) , that is £13100 per head. Bearing in mind that all the office furniture computer systems telephones etc were brand new when moving into Dragonfly house I still find it hard to comprehend.

if it is to be it is up to me.

Terry, I could in no way justify the costs of moving to Yare House, nor the alleged savings. Like others, I did look closely but two and two did not add up to four, or even three and a half for that matter. Devious and creative justification became the order of the day and trust in the BA took a further battering.

You have a point!

From a damaged boat to a profligate quango, agreed, hard to relate! Sorry.

Doesn't the Broads Authority get a government grant, if so doesn’t every tax payer help pay for the BA moorings?

No, the government grant is for the first of the three BNA duties. The rules, such as they are, do not permit any of that money to be spent on the navigation.

Navigation income from tolls is only supposed to be spent on the navigation. The navigation income for any year is supposed to balance with navigation expenditure, but creative accounting means that there has been an inexorable increase of the navigation expenditure that disappears into expenses that can hardly be justified as 'navigation expenditure'.

Been hit by another boat? Report the incident to the Marine Accident Investigation Branch’s dedicated accident reporting line on 023 8023 2527 which is monitored 24 hours a day.  Help to make the Broads safer.

Spiderman, looks like your comment has fell on death ears. Once BA bashing enters a topic there is no stopping it, it comes under its own rule. Would have thought that the original poster would have stepped in as he doesn’t like posts to go off topic.

Bella, I thought it was polite to answer a member's question. Your post didn't exactly help the discussion on the original topic. But, hey ho, let's get back on topic, shall we, if you have any pertinent comment to make.

Paladine, I thought that it was polite to answer a Members question.
I thought that I had helped the discussion by answering spiderman’s Question. But, hey ho, lets get back on topic, shall we, unless you have any more impertinent comments to make.

Paladine, I wholeheartedly respect you and read and appreciate all the knowledge that you bring to this forum but when there is a chance within a discussion it is changed to BA Bashing and in my opinion it seems the same old gripes, again and again.
I know it’s not always you who starts it but I think that many of the BA
bashers look up to you as their leader.

Steve had asked earlier in the discussion that it was kept on topic.
