This report https://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/pdf_file/0032/366854/BASG-Report-Opening-access-to-EA-owned-banks.pdf will be presented to the Broads Local Access Forum on 2 December, by the Norwich & District Anglers Association.

I note that the fishing spots from Cold Harbour Farm to Womack Dyke, having been unused by anglers so they are now inaccessible, are the subject of a request that they be brought back into use (at whose expense), to the detriment of boaters who wild moor along that section.

What's that old saying? Use them or lose them.

Similarly those in Fleet Dyke!! I think I have only very rarely ever seen anyone fishing from the platforms between the two sets of moorings in Fleet Dyke. Plenty fishing from where the boats moor, but from the designated and specially built platforms just for fishing- not likely!!!

The BASG is becoming something of a thorn in the side throughout Broadland.......!!!

During last summer, I encountered a gentleman on the footpath between those two moorings, studious consulting his mobile phone. As I reached him, he asked me where the fishing platforms were, as they were showing on his phone app (?) but he couldn't actually find them.

I pointed out their approximate positions to him, but the reed and undergrowth was so dense as to make it virtually impossible to reach them. If they were in regular use, there would have been beaten paths to them.

The EA has, in the last couple of weeks, been right along that section and cut the reed etc.

Before the BASG starts on about getting more fishing access, it should take steps to ensure better use of the access already provided.

Agree 100% Pally!

But what it does show is how effective a small, but determined pressure group can be. NSBA take note!!!!

Pressure group? Surely not.

As the Broads Angling Strategy Group, they might have been considered to be a pressure group. But 3 years ago, that BASG was dissolved and another group, confusingly with the same initials BASG, was formed. This was the Broads Angling Services Group and it registered itself (with Companies House) as a Community Interest Company (CIC).

While the original BASG's activities were unregulated, the new BASG is regulated by the Community Interest Company Regulations 2005 (CICR), and must meet the 'community interest test'.

Section 3 of those regulations state:

3.—(1) For the purposes of the community interest test the following activities are to be treated as not being activities which a reasonable person might consider are activities carried on for the benefit of the community:

a)the promotion of, or the opposition to, changes in—

(i)any law applicable in Great Britain or elsewhere; or

(ii)the policy adopted by any governmental or public authority in relation to any matter;

(b)the promotion of, or the opposition (including the promotion of changes) to, the policy which any governmental or public authority proposes to adopt in relation to any matter...


Is the present BASG engaged in promoting or opposing any policies of the BNA or EA?
