Whitlingham Country Park 24 hour moorings

The Broads Authority wishes to inform boaters that the electricity supply to pillars at Whitlingham Country Park moorings will be disconnected on Wednesday July 28 2021.

This step is required in order to remove infrastructure in readiness for the management of the moorings (which are owned by Whitlingham Charitable Trust) to be handed back to the Trust in September 2021.

Authority management of these moorings is no longer cost effective given the ongoing challenges of the site and new leasing costs introduced by the Trust.

This area of the Yare/Wensum has a number of other mooring sites available, including Authority managed moorings at Commissioners Cut where major improvements and refurbishments are being planned for winter 2021/22. This includes major piling work and investigation into the widening of the entrance to this mooring basin so that more boats can use the facilities.

The Whitlingham Charitable Trust has not stated its intentions regarding future use of the moorings. Please contact the Whitlingham Charitable Trust if you have any questions regarding the future of the site.
