BEWARE !
If you are like ourself lucky enough to live in a waterside property please read this!
We have decaying quay heading that requires replacement. We live in a designated river area (pretty much all tidal areas) in a conservation zone.
We require;
1. Planning permission (not too expensive but took 6 months)
2.A licence from the Marine Management Organisation (MMO). The application is unbelievably complex and can be VERY expensive. We are capped in Band B at £1400, but if you are in Band C the costs are unlimited.
If you use the "wrong words" in the application form you are put into Band C !
3.An Environment Agency licence - which should be a rubber stamp of the MMO licence (not sure of the fee...)
4.A River works licence - not too expensive.
Much of the information required in 1-3 is duplication.
If you don't have all the licences then the consequences from all the Authorities can be incredibly expensive.
The Broads Authority as far as can be seen do not need a licence from the MMO !
....and this is before you pay for the works!

I don't think all the bungalow owners at Potter Heigham go through all that palaver.

Did the planners at the BA say you needed an MMO licence?

Some years ago I purchased a freehold mooring in St Olaves for peanuts, with the intention of buying the one adjacent and renewing both quay headings as one: mine wasn't that bad but the neighbour wanted to get rid of his because his quay heading was poor and physically lower than mine. The hoops that the BA expected me as a private individual to jump through were unbelievable, especially compared to what “the Big Three” seem to be able to get away with. If I recall correctly, amongst other things I couldn't use material dredged from my own mooring as back-fill, and there was a requirement impossible to meet concerning earth transported from the site (or to, I really can't remember which).

Anyway, to cut a long story short it really wasn't worth the faff and I sold the plot on for what I'd paid for it, plus a couple of grand to cover Agent's and legal fees.

The BA suggest that we may need to apply to the MMO/Environment Agency/River Licence for permission.
When you check it out with the various agencies then in our case we had to.
If you live beside a designated river then you definitely have to apply to the MMO.

Surely you can maintain an existing quay edge, so why not "maintain" by replacing sections at a time making it a mere repair.
And do it at night when no-one is looking......
