Hi,

A few stupid questions about tolls on the Broads that I need answers to.

I am planning on bringing my boat to the Broads for a few weeks in the summer. (assuming we get one!)
I would like to leave my boat in the water for 3 weeks, but only use it for week 1 and week 3. In the second week it will be moored out of use on a 'private' dyke.

Do I need a temporary license for three weeks or two licenses for one week each?

What constitutes 'private' water? Does it have to be chained off?  What about private frontage?

Many thanks.

Hi Dean

The short answer is yes you do need to pay a toll.

Visit the following link for costs.

All right so what is the technical name, sharp end or pointy end?

£85.50 for three weeks compared to £114.22 for the full year? They are not making too much of an effort to attract short term visitors it seems.

We keep Jeremy Fisher at Womack in the small dyke at the end of the staithe.  Talking to the Ranger the other day who was checking for licenses on the boats moored on the Parish Moorings, it seems that our small dyke is "Private" Water and whilst moored there, boats do not require a license.  It is not chained across or anything like that.

Regards

Simon

A bad day on the water is better than a good day in the office.

"as in private water dont have to have a licence"

Makes a mockery out of it all.   If we have an inflatable - without even air in it on the boat we have to have a £86 licence.     What is one rule for one and one for another.

Either we should all pay or it should be a bit fairer.

Hylander I am not sure what point you are making... Jeremy Fisher doesn't require a license whilst it sits in that private dyke, the minute it leaves, it does... So, you will not be surprised to find that it is licensed! There may well be other boats there that are not licensed but are not taken out of the dyke. As such they would not come under the BA jurisdiction. I suppose that's what 'private' means.

Your inflatable does not require a license to sit in your garage, but it does if you intend, or may wish, to use it on the Broads. If you don't, then you can save yourself the £86.00
