Broads Engage

Broads Engage offers you opportunities to hear about and have a say on key issues for the Broads and how we look after it for the benefit of people and wildlife.

Latest news and diary dates

In light of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, our committee and forum meetings will proceed only if the need is considered ‘business critical’. The next scheduled Parish Forum event on 18 March 2020 has been cancelled. Continue to check the Broads Engage web page for updates.

Get involved

Take part in a Broads Engage workshop

The Broads Engage workshops have replaced the Broads Forum as a way for interest and community groups to meet and discuss topics of importance to your local stakeholders and the Broads Authority. You are welcome to send representatives from your groups to any workshop of interest. We also welcome suggestions for future workshop topics. Find out more on the Broads Engage Workshops page.

Attend a Parish Forum

The next Parish Forum event (Wednesday 18 March 2020) has been cancelled and will be re-arranged to a suitable date.

There are two Parish Forum events a year, to update parish councillors and clerks on Broads-related news and answer your questions. Representatives from all parish councils in and adjacent to the Broads are welcome to these meetings. Find out more on the Parish Forum page.

Respond to a consultation

We regularly consult the public as part of our planning and decision making processes. This ranges from the preparation of management plans and local planning policies to visitor surveys and Conservation Area Appraisals. Visit the Consultations page for the latest news.

Contact a partnership working group

Partnership working groups cover topical interests such as tourism, biodiversity or education, or area-based matters like Broadland catchment management. The groups generally involve representatives from accountable or influencing organisations, as well as local stakeholders. Contact us to find out more about raising your issues at these meetings.
