Kelvin opened the meeting and welcomed Andrew Stone from the EDP. After a discussion which Tony
Gibbons highlighted the potential risks in moving this forward given the limited resources available,
the wider members felt this was the only option open and the merits of the future structure and
formation of a CIC should be supported.
The two proposals where then moved.
Proposal 1 – To amend the BASG constitution para 10, that all assets be held by the AT East of
England Forum for transfer to the new formed incorporated body which shall replace BASG.
Proposed by Duncan Holmes and seconded by John Currie. 8 for 1 abstention
Proposal 2 – That the Unincorporated BASG be dissolved and all assets transferred to a new
Incorporated Community Investment Company, name to be confirmed.
Proposed by Andy Hines and seconded by Duncan Holmes. 8 for 1 abstention
Kelvin stated that BASG had achieved many successes over its 17 year period and thanked those who
has been involved over the period. But time has come to move on.
The EGM was then formally closed.
By necessity, this delicate balance of interests leads to a complex management system for the area involving local authorities, Natural England, the Broads Authority, the Environment Agency, Norfolk Wildlife Trust and other specialist interests including, of course, anglers.
The Angling Trust recognises the value of the Broad land both in terms of it’s social economic and environment value, with it being England’s largest fresh water fishery.We wish to work with the BASG and key partners to ensure these values are both maintained and enhanced so they can be enjoyed by all for the future.
The site brings you both high and detailed level maps along with information on all public fishing venues on the Broads. It also contains EA Hydro survey results mapped into Google to complement where to fish.
