Successful Annual Public Meeting draws dozens

Dozens of people interested in the work of the Broads Authority gathered for an interactive annual public meeting on Saturday 28 June to find out information, ask questions and air views.

The meeting, on the Authority’s silver anniversary, was the second APM at the Dockyard in Thorpe. Staff and members were on hand with stands and displays to talk about their work from conservation, practical work and ranger services to tourism and recreation, education, planning matters and adapting to climate change.

A presentation by Chief Executive Dr John Packman talked about the Authority's work over the past 25 years to improve and protect the Broads - the results of which include better water quality, free moorings and the return of rare wildlife - as well as its future priorities and achievements over the past year.

Questions were asked about mooring provision, the make up of the committee structure and heritage boat tolls.
