Disproportionate relationship between size of boat and the amount of toll paid

The fixed charge system, which is based on boat size alone, replaces the existing fixed plus variable cost system, which was deemed to be too confusing and often unfair to smaller boat owners.

John Packman, chief executive of the Broads Authority, said: “For a long while there has been a disproportionate relationship between size of boat and the amount of toll paid.” He continued: “The key aim is for the system to be fairer overall so that the charges for each vessel type are based on size, and size alone.”
