Having read the latest news on the "other" thread on a regular basis and while thinking about the whole sorry & expensive saga I wondered why those who so passionately want the site returned to nature or what ever, don't make the owners an offer he or they cannot refuse, then nobody looses face and the world moves on in the Kingdom of Thorpe (This suggestion excludes BA if it is just the sacred organisation who wish to remove the craft supposedly ruining so many residents  lives). They could even join together to create the Thorpe Island Trust    

Edited to make it clear this suggestion excludes BA from any expenditure

With no direspect DH why should anybody least of all a public body bale him out of the **** of his own making. He thought he could bi-pass the system and must now stand by the consequences of his own actions.

I couldn't agree more DH , iv often thought why there's such an interest in Thorpe island both by BA and certain forum member's , if it's just for the sake of planning law fine but  is it is there another reason for BA's consistent action based on yge fact that there are so few complainant's DIRECTLY involved , om quite sure the vast majority of forum member's would have been much happier if BA instead of throwing so much pubic money at this had spent it in other areas , yesbi know its not coming from the tolls account or is it BA seam to merged the accounts as and when they wish it would hardly BW the fist time the nav account has been used to pay for non nav things .
But what bothers me more is only a few member's clearly want Mr wood to be totally bankrupt over this or so it seams , and seemingly don't give a dam about the residents on less they live in the house's that are so affected by the mooring of boats yet they own boats ! .
The broads are not a picture postcard they are a living thing in which people on boats and in houses should coexist happily just the same as they do in many areas of England .
Just because u choose to live on a boat doesn't make u dome form of river gypsy n trust me I hate that term nor does it mean ur are in some way of a lower life form .
Yes planning should be applied for as it was previously believed that is was in place but obviously not , and if n when a application goes in inline with the inspector's report it is subsequently rejected then I for one want to know why and on what ground's .
Most if not all of the people who post on this in respect of pushing for BA to spend as much as they need to as to clearing Jenner's basin will ever be affected by it , some live no where near it , it will never affect their lives in any way at all .

"some live no where near it , it will never affect
their lives in any way at all ."

Very much like the STI site then....asking for people to
add their voice to something that doesn't affect them.

A very good point, BB. At least, the members here, whether for, against or on the fence, have an interest in, even a love of, the Broads. It's apparent from comments on STI/FB that some of the 'supporters' don't even know where the Broads are.

Thank u for pointing that out paladine I want aware of that that some don't know where the broads are , u must read STI more than I do .
Yes there are people from all over the place including other country's which is what u find with a global social media group on FB , u can hardly say that ALL of the backer's for action by BA on this forum come from Norfolk , for instance I know 2 of the as I call them the gang of 4 that don't live here and similarly I know 2 people in Canada that I added on STI one is visiting Norwich this yr n one here last yr and knows full well what the broads are about , exactly where Jenner's basin is and how beautiful Norfolk is oh iv another coming here in summer from Nottingham , so u can hardly say they don't know where Norfolk is even this forum has member's from outside the UK so why shouldn't STI ? .
But the fact remain s what ever happens re Jenner's it won't affect those who are on here pushing for BA action regardless of what that means to fellow boater's caught up in this .

Rick - no one wishes to bankrupt Mr Wood but merely to get him to abide by the rules everyone else does, if they wilfully ignore those rules regarding planning others have to abide by. If he had planning permission to moor residential boats in Jenners Basin, I would have no issue.

Equally he appears to continue even now to try and circumvent the law by ignoring what the Courts ask him to do. He appears not even to wish to proceed as advised and right at the outset, I guess he knew exactly what he was doing when he bought the land. Ignorance of the law has never been an excuse for anyone and seemingly he chose to ignore a basic principle of English property law - caveat emptor.

Perhaps that all points why now, and at this stage, sympathy is in short supply.

Rick, I live in Chelmsford but have owned boats on the Broads for more than 15 years. I have gained a little knowledge of Broadland in that time, so I'm aware of the location of Thorpe Island.  

Whatever I think of the situation at Jenners basin is of no consequence. It comes down to what is legal and what is not.

I'm a firm believer in the rule of law, whether or not I disagree with particular elements of it. If we pick and choose which laws we obey and which ones we don't, then anarchy rules.

So Rick, I have a simple question for you. Do you believe in the law of the land, yes or no. If your answer is yes, then your support for the action at Jenners Basin is flawed.

With all due respect Steve my loyalty lies with those who got innocently caught up in this n yes I know some will say they must have know but does anyone know all the ins and outs of their marina ? I'd very much doubt it .
When it comes to law of cause I support legality I have stated that many times over the course of this thread , I don't see however how that makes my support for the people moored in Jenner's in anyway flawed at all and my posts reflect that I believe that planning should have been and still should be sought asap .
I used a couple of examples of people who its unlikely to affect in anyway simply because they have criticised STI for exactly the same thing ie not living in the area .
The simple fact is neither they or myself will ever have any influence on the outcome of this in any shape or form .

Rick, for what it's worth I too have sympathy with those who are caught up in this sorry saga. However, the law is the law and whether we agree with it or not the owner of the island should obey it.
