Do You Need A Right To Live?

Post by Miles » October 16th, 2017, 10:36 am

residential boats moored where they are authorised to do so and has made 
provision for these within the draft local plan.
I wonder if the wherrymen faced these issues?

It is commonly believed that people have lived on inland waterways since recorded history. Whether they do or not, is not a Broads Authority issue, not is it something that should require planning permission from the undemocratic organisation that allegedly runs the Broads.

In my opinion, it is a social issue.
Social issues are not anything to do with the Broads Authority.

The Broads Authority has no statutory role in meeting housing requirements

If the Broads Authority use the term,
residential
designed for people to live in.

providing accommodation in addition to other services
Then that would also include hire craft.
So, my question is why on Earth is there any difference in hire boats and private boats if they both are used for residential purposes?

The only difference is the amount of time any one person will spend on the waterways.

That is not a reason to attempt to suppress and oppress residential boaters.

It is a one rule for them and one rule for the others.
That could be deemed as prejudice.

Furthermore, if the BA moorings are occupied from April to October by vessels which are, 'designed for people to live in'. Whether they be private or hire craft, then do those moorings require planning permission too?
If these free moorings are being used for residential purposes which they are by any boat, 'designed for people to live in', then surely suppression of residential boaters in a similar mooring capacity is ridiculous.
However, we will leave it for our readers to decide.

It is the duty of the Authority to manage the Broads for the purposes of: Conserving and enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the Broads. Promoting opportunities for understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the Broads by the public. Protecting the interests of navigation
I personally do not see cultural heritage being purposed.

Is not residential boats as much a part of cultural heritage as anything else?

Apparently if you moor on a parish staith the BA have no duristriction to move you on as long as you are legal with BA licence and insurance, the only authority to tell you to move is the parish council.have a look at Stalham the water gypsy's have taken up residence at the staith and the BA have had a look but apparently can not move them it has to be the parish council

There is 2 of their boats moored ATM the big cruser posed by an outboard and a smaller craft, they are tied up right opposite the Mermade Slipper, nice outlook for all those paying a small fortune to eat there and yes I do agree about the state of the staith it looks really unloved at the moment, sorry about no photos didn't get time to take a snap

Yes I think I recognise that craft's description.
I wonder if my good old friend Mike is still there?
Believe he lost his dog recently.
I would imagine the lady who runs the Mermaid Slipper is far from happy.
The whole moorings looked like a Vietnam jungle in the summer and a mud bath in the winter. There were bushes growing there I did not know even existed.
p@@@@d me off actually as that is a great stop for a Tescos run and if you get right in the corner you are quite safe from the hire boat torpedoes.
