This letter from Chedgrave Parish council to the Broads authority may be of import. to members travelling the Southern Rivers.

Re: Craft obstructing River Chet (Langley with Hardley/Chedgrave area)

As you will no doubt be aware, a holiday boat recently sank in the River Chet having collided with a collapsed part of a ‘sunken quay heading’.   I have been asked by members of Chedgrave Parish Council to contact you regarding this matter as one of our councillors has reported that she does not feel that the Broads Authority is taking the issue seriously in giving a response that signage was in place to warn river users of under water hazards.

While this may be the case, the fact remains that the majority of users are likely to be pleasure users/holiday makers with limited awareness of signs and their implications.  It is felt that while hazards like this remain, other pleasure boatyards will be discouraging their customers from visiting stretches of the broads network where there are hazards like this, thus reducing potential commerce in those areas.  If heading away from Chedgrave, the hazard is situated beyond Hardley Flood.

We would like to request that urgent action is taken to repair the sunken quay heading in order that users can confidently and safely navigate this part of the broads network.

I am copying this letter to the Clerk of Langley with Hardly Parish Council as I understand that the hazard sits within their parish boundary.

I look forward to your response.

Yours faithfully,



Hayley Goldson, Clerk, Chedgrave Parish Council

cc: Carla Petersen, Clerk, Langley with Hardley Parish Council

The quay heading in question is between Hardley Cross and hardley flood

That’s an interesting letter.

If the obstruction is a sunken quay heading, is it not the responsibility of the landowner?

So it could be the landowner, or EA or BESL? But not down to the BA, then?

C.P.C. are simply inviting a response to a factual situation.  No comment or suggestions are being made.  I have posted here least residents in other parishes which look at this site are not aware of the situation.  I am not aware for what may have happened since the parish council meeting certainly as a councillor I have heard no more.

Concerned? I don’t think so. Apparently the obstruction has been marked, and it’s to the side of the river. Simply keep clear of the marked area.
