Jan/Feb dredging work !!

Please note the dredging works have started and expected to be complete by the end of February. Mud will be pumped via a floating pipe West to East across the Broad! We will need to be very careful to navigate safely around the equipment. Windsurfers will be cut off from the broad from 12 Feb. Due to the cold weather, and hazards on the Broad it’s probably best to keep away.

  • w/c 29 Jan – Dredging equipment being set up on the water
  • The dredging operation will start in Area A and work northwards.
  • The dredging vessel and pipeline will be marked with buoys and clear signage to warn users of the Broad of its location and working area. Please be aware that the dredging vessel works along a tensioned wire rope and has a trailing floating pipeline; these will be marked to indicate the hazard to all water users.
  • From 12 Feb During the period of dredging within Area C, the pipeline will stretch West to East across the broad blocking access to the Broad from the Windsurfing club (as notified within Notice to Mariners http://www.broads-authority.gov.uk/__data/assets/word_doc/0006/1080717/NTM-1-of-2018_Hickling-Broad.doc ).
