When Breydon Water came under the remit of GYPA, it could be argued that there was a 7 knot speed limit on entering the harbour, which probably continued until the BA executive area on the lower Bure, Yare and Waveney. Since the BA have taken over responsibility for Breydon Water, the BA speed limit byelaws have not been updated and there is effectively now no speed limit for the area that has been transferred from the GYPA, which includes the lower Bure past the yacht station. Other byelaws regarding safe navigation obviously would / could be applied.

Are there any plans to review the speed limit byelaws with regard to the transferred area, and in particular any plans to introduce a speed limit across Breydon, if none exists? Can you clarify once and for all whether there is currently a speed limit across Breydon?

Happy to support the honest and reliable pubs and businesses of The Norfolk Broads.

Hi again Kfurbank,

You are correct in that there is no speed limit on Breydon and there are no plans to introduce one. However you are also right in that other byelaws apply to this area and cover this aspect, specifically the one relating to care and caution.
