What We Do

 The Broads Society is an independent charity helping to secure a sustainable future for the Broads

Our members share a common purpose

to help secure a sustainable future for The Broads

as a unique and protected landscape

in which leisure, tourism and the local economy

can thrive in harmony with the natural environment.


We are the only local group  who’s aim is to bring together the many diverse organisations  from across Broadland. We raise important broads related issues in an independent, qualified manner, with our constitutional objectives being:

To stimulate public appreciation and knowledge of the Broads area by promoting educated and informed discussion about all matters related to the Region, thus encouraging maximum enjoyment of its special features.

To maintain, restore, conserve, improve and develop objects, features, buildings and sites of historical, social, artistic, ecological and scientific interest relating to the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads for the public benefit.

To take all available steps to safeguard the Region‟s environment, including its landscape and ecology, and to support, as and when appropriate, the measures being taken by the Broads Authority, Environment Agency and other bodies to achieve this objective.

To consider and take such steps as are appropriate to comment upon and make representations (including appearing at public enquiries) concerning planning, management and operational proposals likely to affect the region.

To preserve and, where appropriate, improve facilities for navigation.

To encourage activities beneficial to the Broads and in particular to enable young people to appreciate the regional opportunities.
