Opportunity to serve on the Navigation Committee

The Broads Authority’s Navigation Committee is an important consultative body providing advice on key issues relating to the management of the waterways.  Every four years an open process is run to select new members and now is your chance to apply to join the committee.  Applications are welcomed from individuals who have a good knowledge of the Broads and its special qualities, the navigation area, current relevant issues and the recreational uses of the Broads.  A modest allowance and reasonable expenses will be paid.

Applications need to be received by 19 October 2018 and candidates will be shortlisted for interviews to be held in November.  Successful candidates will stand for a minimum of four years from March 2019.

The committee consists of 13 members appointed by the Broads Authority, of whom five are Broads Authority members and eight are appointed as a result of this process.

The committee meets five times a year and is consulted on the level of tolls to be charged, planning applications that may significantly affect the navigation area and relevant new policies, plans and strategies.

The current Chair is Nicky Talbot and Brian Wilkins is Vice-Chair.  They are also members of the Authority itself.
