BASG has almost completed the transfer of assets from the Broads Authority namely the access platforms on Rollesby Broad.
These have become a community asset owned by BASG.
It is the first asset to become owned by the Community Interest Company formed in late 2018 and takes its formation to a new level protecting and securing the future of Broads Angling, as set out in the Broads Angling Strategy.
The transfer deed is from the Broads Authority to The Broads Angling Services Group, land owner Northumbrian Water Ltd and access via the footpath owned by Rollesby Parish Council. With a management agreement contained in the Trinity Broads Management Plan, overseen by Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
Like most assets across the Broads, management and ownership are complex and the key is building partnerships with others.
BASG will now need to ensure these assets are both maintained and safe for the anglers benefit, with the associated liabilities.
But what a stunning location to go fishing!
