Solicitors for the Broads Authority have now received written confirmation that a High Court date of 17 June has been set to hear the Authority’s application for a permanent injunction to remedy various planning breaches at Jenner’s Basin, Thorpe Island.
The action is being taken by the Broads Authority against landowner Roger Wood but solicitors acting for the Authority are contacting all those who may be affected. This is the next stage of the legal process after an interim injunction was granted to the Authority in March to halt any further unlawful developments while the permanent injunction hearing date was set.
Save the Island campaigners have previously stated that only four to six of the boats which rent moorings from Mr Wood in Jenner’s Basin and along the riverbank at the western end of the island are being lived on. Other moorings owned by Mr Wood at the eastern end of Thorpe Island are not affected by this action.
The Authority has still not received a planning application for the unlawful developments carried out by the landowner at the site which is in a conservation area. You can read the full background here.
