I may be wrong but I believe the B.A. took over responsibility for planning dcisions in 1989, in the last 31 years a lot of Riverside industrial land has been lost to residential use.

I remember when the houses opposite Barnes Brinkcraft were built and the B.A.  were definately around then, so could have with a bit of forsight purchased or leased a bit of land, also the private moorings opposite BB used to  be a daily charged mooring.  However that is all in the past and nothing can be done about it. I also remember  when you could stop by the bridge before the local authority let it out for bridge pilots only!!!

Boating News - Our new 24-hour mooring at Castle Staithe is now open for use by the public.

This site has been recently taken over by the Authority and some temporary repairs were required to make it serviceable for the summer period. These have now been completed and site (which is 30m in size) is now open.

The mooring is located on the River Bure, near Caen Meadow in Wroxham.

An old chestnut I know, but it would be nice to see the 24 hour mooring in general and all areas of the Broads enforced.  
I regularly walk my dogs along past a certain 24 hour mooring and certainly during the winter months I note that boats are there for 4 or more days. Sometimes over a week.
There has been a lot of debate on here about anglers ignoring signs asking them not to fish between certain months yet a certain fraternity of the boating world seem to just blatently ignore the request not to stay for more than 24 hours.

Dos it matter in the winter months they are hardly blocking anybody else and if they use the electric they are paying for it, i have never found out of season not being able to moor because someone has been there longer than 24 hours, in fact it's nice to be able to chat to some one and in the winter can be safer to have a another boat nearby in case of emergency plus in inclement weather it is safer to stay longer than having to move on a empty mooring just because you have been there for 24 hours John

Got to agree with John. I would hope rangers and others would use their common sense. Surely the 24 hour rule is to allow access for all who want it . If the moorings are empty what harm does staying a bit longer do.
Also seem to remember the 24 hour rule has been suspended for liveaboards during lockdown to help them keep safe. Might well be wrong on that though.

Well I will restate my own view on this, which is that every boat on the system should have to have a home mooring.

The phrase "constant cruiser" is regularly banded about in these discussions but there is no such status on the Broads. I have to pay a toll to use the navigation, including any BA public moorings I choose to stop at, and I respect and accept that these moorings are for 24 hour non permanent use. On top of that toll fee therefore I have to find the money to pay for a home mooring for my boat, and so should everyone who wants to use the navigation.

By encouraging or overlooking the use of 24 hour Moorings whilst it is quiet in the winter, we are simply compounding the problems that will then inevitably occur in the busier months.

Our toll payment, amongst other things,  incudes the provision of 24hour moorings, clearly by their very name they are for irregular and temporary use. Quite simple really. I cannot see why those moorings should provide anyone with the opportunity to avoid a home mooring fee. Then, by paying for a properly designated residential mooring , those living on the water are contributing to the costs associated with, for example, permanent refuse removal etc.

I know this is not always a popular view,  but it is my view and I don't hide behind what I believe to be fair and right.

Not sure what you are actually against here Karen . Is it overstaying 24 hours during quiet periods in winter because that's what the rules say .(  I tend to do this when the moorings are empty as no one else wants to use then so I would disagree with you on this ). Not this year of course as stuck at home with boat  in marina.

Or is it that in  your opinion  liveaboards should have  their own moorings as a matter of course   . A view I have some sympathy with .

Yes Graham, in essence I feel that liveaboards should have a home mooring. Always have felt that way. Looking at things logically and fairly, that's how I see it to ensure a level playing field.

In terms of anyone at all overstaying in winter months for a couple of days , I do see your point. All I was trying to assert was that in relation to those without a home mooring, and combining that with those saying that it doesn't matter for liveaboards in the winter to use 24 hour leisure moorings for longer, we are simply avoiding the issues that this useage means long term.
