Just to let those who are unaware know that there are no longer BA moorings at Aldeby on The River Waveney. Frown

I have recieved a confirmation e-mail from BA.

Kind Regards

Hylander, the reason that the moorings at Aldeby (and Woodbastwick and Perci's Island) have been lost is because the respective landowners increased the cost of the leases to a figure above what the BA can pay.

Not everything is the BA's fault.

So the moorings that are excellent and paid for by the toll payers are handed over to a greedy landowner.  Will the moorings now not be there at all.

Not handed over. If the lease comes to an end - and a new one is priced way too high - then the land owner takes the mooring back. Not in the BAs control. They could of course pay all the extortionate amounts and raise the tolls to cover the costs!!! Tinhat boat-sail

The BA have to take a stand. If the mooring leases are beyond market rates they should let them go. A total pain for us boaters but as with every public sector body / Quango everyone sees them as a cash cow that can be milked mercilessly.
There has been enough fuss about this years tolls...anyone fancy a further 10 to 20 percent increase to fund overpriced leases?

Its not about whether the BA can or cannot pay but as with all things, the BA MUST take advice on what is value or not, otherwise technically the toll payers could, or would be mightily aggrieved!

Of course if it ever got out that the BA were going to pay over the market rate, the queue would reach half way round the Broads of already wealthy landowners keen to make an honest crust!! Doesnt always work though  - see the Woodbastwick moorings which did not go quite to plan - except for the landowner!!!

I suspect the issue at Aldeby may have been related to that very large sheet piling which at some stage would be pretty pricey to replace.

Does anybody know if it is still possible to moor at Aldeby, albeit they are no longer BA moorings?

We passed last week- still moorable but fee payable locally. I think it was either £4 or £5 for a daytime stop or overnight.

No idea of who/how you pay.

I do hope so as we would pay £5 to moor there.  Rather that than lose the moorings altogether.

I just hope he charges the fishermen to park their cars there as well.
