Even high spending quango has to cut back and be more restrained in raising taxes

Tolls on the Broads will increase by 2.85% in the next financial year, the lowest rise for 17 years.


Broads Authority members unanimously agreed the below-inflation rise in recognition of the financial pressure on many boaters. It has been made possible by unanticipated extra income from the growth in the hire boat fleet.


The number of boats registered on the Broads is up by 151 on 2010, with 31 more motor cruisers for hire. The new charges will mean a £12 increase for a large motor boat (48m2) currently paying £425 but only an 80p rise for a canoe paying £28.
