Thanks for reviving this Paladine.
The proposal is an excellent one in my opinion. If the BA dredged the dyke would it be wide enough for boats to moor without blocking access? There would need to be sufficient width for boats to pass oncoming vessels and those moored.
I also have reservations about new moorings being created that might not meet the BA over the top specfication.
There are a small number of wild moorings on the BA side of the river between Cromes Dyke and the moorings at How Hill that had been used for many years but now have BA No Mooring signs. There appears to be a reluctance on the BA part to allow wild mooring where they have influence.

How can such a simple job turn into all this ,it would be nice for once to hear - by Jove that’s a good idea we will sort it out, but not possible with autocrats I guess.
I notice European something or other came into the multitude of problems to overcome the mind boggles how anything ever gets done.

You will be pleased to learn thats its not necessarily the BA that put obstacles in its own way! Landowners, the EA, Natural England and a host of others like to get involved just to justify their roles!

I am sure if you were to spend a day or so at the coalface with those on the ground, you would be horrified!!!

Marshman, I 'attended' the meeting, via ZOOM, and the need for permissions was discussed fully. Only the Broads Authority was identified as (possibly) having any remit to interfere.

I took a walk to the dyke today, to take photos of the current appearance and compare it with my 2014 photos. Despite having copies of my 2014 photos with me, it was difficult to identify most of the locations at which they were taken, because of the overgrowth of vegetation.

This composite picture will give you an idea, though.

There is (was) a footpath which went from the wild mooring at the mouth of the dyke, alongside the river, towards Mud Point.

See photos
