Work to restore an eroded reed bed at Salhouse Broad in Norfolk using dredgings from the nearby river has been selected as a finalist for a prestigious national award.
The Broads Authority project has been nominated for the 2013 Water Renaissance Awards.
More than half of boats on the Norfolk and Suffolk Broads will see their tolls reduced or remain the same next season.
The Broads Authority has agreed an overall rise of 3% in income from tolls from April which will see small boats paying less than this year and larger boats paying more.
A total of 5,700 private rowing, sailing and motor boats out of a total of 10,900 will see a reduction or no increase at all.
