A question has been asked about the regular toll increases.

Over the past few years when tolls have gone up, the BA have said it's for a special project. Such as SOB, dredging Breydon, soe park projects.

As these are "one-time" costs, shouldn't the tolls come down after the project is complete?

Dear Richard,

The Authority looks at the level of navigation charges in October each year for the following year. At that stage we have a good idea of what the final level of income will be and what allowance we have to make for any loss of income, from the reduction in the number of hire boats for example.

We also have a feel for what pressures we might have for expenditure the following year which will include big projects like Turntide Jetty or the on-going work in Hickling.

We take a report to the Navigation Committee setting out these factors and seek their views on the level of increase for the following year. In almost every year the Broads Authority has accepted the recommendations of the Navigation Committee when it comes to set the tolls in November.

As always it is a balancing act between the desire for more expenditure to fund more activity against trying to moderate the increase of charges on our toll payers.
