Urgent Boating News
Haddiscoe Cut closed
Please be advised that the police have closed Haddiscoe Cut due to an incident which has occurred.  Broads Authority launches are in attendance and boaters are advised to divert via St. Olaves and Breydon Water. It is anticipated that the Cut will be re-opened later today when an update will be issued.
River Chet Emergency Works – Broadland Environmental Services Ltd (BESL)
BESL are currently undertaking emergency works on the River Chet, adjacent to Norton Marshes, Nogdam End.  
In addition to the failed piling removal there will be a need to rollback the bank from the river’s edge.  This will entail excavating a new soke dyke to provide a good base and then using material from the old bank to bring it to height.  The channel edge will then be re-profiled and planted with reed rhizome.  
Please navigate the area with care and caution, adhering to any signage or any instructions given by the works team.
