Tourism in Langley could benefit from several new moorings in the area, it has been claimed.
A planning application to create a total of 13 extra sites at Langley Dyke on the Yare- including four “infill” moorings which will sit in between existing ones - has been submitted.
If approved, they would be private moorings rented out to boat owners throughout the year. A new car park, turning area and slipway would also be created.
The application has been submitted by Nicholas Allhusen, the son of Major Derek Allhusen, an equestrian and Olympic gold medal winner. He owns Claxton Manor Farms, just a few miles along the river from Langley Dyke, which Johnny Depp is rumoured to have been looking to buy.

The Broads Authority, which is responsible for planning decisions in the area, will consider the application in a meeting on Friday and officers have recommended the plans should be approved.
In a report to go before the planning committee, it says the moorings would enhance tourism in the area and would improve the waterway by helping people to access and navigate them more easily.

However since the dyke is next to Langley Abbey the report says an archaeological investigation of the area where the slipway and car park would be should be carried out before any work begins.
Cally Smith, head of regeneration and development for the Broads Authority, said: “We welcome the creation of new quality moorings at appropriate locations to support the Broads economy.”
