The EA set up a partnership with Hickling parish council and contributed two and a half thousand pounds of rod licence money. The Parish council upgraded the slipway which is accessible for the public to use for a small fee the parking area for cars and trailers and signage around the Staithe. The signage also includes a history of Broadland pike fishing by the very well know pike angler and author Mr Stephen Harper.
