DEFRA Landscapes Review – protect Broads navigation rights

The Government has asked for an independent review of England’s National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs). As a member of the National Parks family, the Broads are included in this review.  Already the review team, led by Julian Glover, have visited the Broads and the Broads Authority has prepared a draft response to them.  This was published with the papers for the recent Broads Authority meeting – link to document here.

The NSBA are concerned about the possible impact of the review on navigation rights and will be preparing their own submission before the consultation deadline of 18 December 2018.

Alongside the NSBA response, we encourage individual users of the Broads to complete the online survey which can be found at:
