After months of trying, via Fish Legal we have being provided the documents that the EA seemingly judged as more relevant than their own fishery experts. These fishery documents come without an author and date of creation.
 Hoveton Project creating a sustainable future for the Bure system (002) …
 Annex 1 – Fish assemblages in the broads
 RedactedUpdated WFD Compliance Assessment_March 2020
 EPR-NB3494JP Schedule 5 responses
 Addendum to Hoveton Wetlands Restoration Project WFDA – Jan 2020
Of note within these documents and only exposed to BASG on the 18th Sep 2020 are the following statements:
 It’s not clear when this document was produced, but clearly it defines the impact in deploying the barriers and should therefore been part of the public consultation.
 Paragraph 4.2 Project impact on the fish community of the Broads
 Paragraph 6 Removal of fish barriers, refers to a legal will to extend the barriers beyond 10 years and any need to remove the barriers based on EA fisheries evidence would be legally challenged. So effectively there is no mitigation or condition to remove the barrier on any condition.
 This should have clearly been made public prior and part of the permit consultation and withholding this until after the permit decision is not in the public interest.
Clearly the Bream don’t stand a chance against this clear will to destroy the very fish that the Broads is so infamous.
