hi all ,
"A landmark island on the Broads which vanished decades ago due to erosion is to be re-created under a pioneering scheme to dispose of dredged material.

A report to tomorrow's meeting of the Broads Authority's navigation committee explains how the island which once separated Heigham Sound from Duck Broad on the Upper Thurne would be recreated using two-metre-high high wire baskets filled with dredged material."

Coincidentally I attended a meeting last night with people from both the Broads Authority & the Environment Agency when a presentation was made on this very subject.

There are problems, planning consent, from the BA, has yet to be given. If the go ahead is given, and Natural England, apparently, still has reservation as to the methods of recreating an island, then it will be done in stages. The idea being that the plug could be pulled if something goes wrong.

There is some fear that an algi bloom will be triggered by the dredging and that could result in massive fish kills, as has happened in the Hickling area before. That would be devastating for the tourist industry.

It is a very brave statement in the press, not one that is completely in tune with what was presented last night!

Jenny Morgan,

Well, when it;s eventually filled with silt there won't be any fish,  so it might be as well to learn early under controlled conditions whether newfangled ideas work.  I hope they are successful, or pull the plug early enough to be able to come back with an adapted method, should it not be satisfactory in the first instance.

"The report to tomorrow's meeting says that there could be possible concerns raised about such issues as the loss of open water and the creation of a navigation hazard."

Presently there is already one very large navigation hazard in Heigham Sound. It is called the bottom.  
Assuming that this process does not cause any environmental damage, it could be a major leap forward.

To give them their due ,it is quite a good idea and will
hopefully work. All they have to do now is dredge Potter
bridge so we can all get under!!! tounge-in-cheek

Why all the new ideas for dredging disposal?

Because the Wildlife Trust won't allow the BA to deposit dredgings on their land.

Perhaps the extra cost involved in dredging disposal should be met by the Wildlife Trust.

Actually Darren thats a bit too simplistic - it is not
a NWT restriction that only limited spoil can be dumped
onto the banks. Ask British Waterways, they too have a
problem with this bit of legislation!

Having said that both NWT and other conservation bodies
have not been overhelpful either!!!!

The Broad does not lend itself easily to dredging
dispoal either - there are very few places in that
vicinity where lighters would have access to banks to
dispose of dredginsgs except in the dykes and/or the
Pleasure Boat staithe
