Those who love to head to Breydon Water in the Norfolk Broads with their fishing rods
will be dealing with a different authority if they plan to fish from a boat.
This is because the Broads Authority is to take over responsibility for navigation on Breydon Water and the Lower Bure.
Although these waters have been inside the Broads Authority area since it was formed in 1989, responsibility for it remained with the Great Yarmouth Port Authority.
A legislative change passed in 2009 will come into force on June 1st and one of the issues the Broads Authority will tackle is the fact that Breydon Water is the hardest stretch of water to cross in the area.
Broads Authority chairman Stephen Johnson said: "Breydon Water joins the northern and southern parts of the Broads where we look after the navigation and it will enable us to provide a single service for the whole area."
The authority area covers 305 sq km, including 12 km of coastline.
