Good question Richard,

As you will know the Authority’s two major sources of core funding are National Park Grant from Defra and income from tolls from our boat owners. We are not directly funded by the European Commission for any of our core activities.

We are also rather unusual in that the maintenance of the navigation area is entirely funded from our toll income – the Canals and Rivers Trust, the Environment Agency and Scottish Canals all receive substantial grant in aid from Government for the maintenance of their navigations.

However, the exit from the European Union will have several major implications for the Broads and the Broads Authority – agri-environment payments and environmental legislation being two of the big ones – including the loss of opportunities to access European grants.

You may be aware of the two successful projects STEP (Sustainable Tourism in Estuary Parks) and PRISMA (Promoting Integrated Sediment Management) we have delivered in recent years with European partners, from Holland, Belgium and France. Collectively they brought in approximately £1.5 million of additional funding for our work. This money would not be available once the UK has left the EU.

We are currently working on a programme, called CANAPE, to access funding from the EU towards the improvement programme for Hickling Broad. I hope this proceeds because we could do with the extra money – but there are currently some doubts about whether it should be led by a UK partner and we wonder if any of the continental organisations would be willing to take it on.

Having said all that there may be some opportunities from BREXIT, including the possibility of devising a Broads specific payment system to support our local farmers like the original Halvergate Grazing Marshes Scheme.
