Extraordinary meeting over long-running Aylsham Water Mill saga
An extraordinary meeting will be held tonight to discuss the latest twist in a long-running dispute over land next an historic water mill.
For more than a decade Aylsham Water Mill has been at the centre of a battle between its owners and the town council over its use – with the argument divided between public access to the River Bure and private ownership.
The saga appeared to be over in September, 2015 when Broadland District Council turned down a request to obtain the land without permission.
The compulsory purchase order (CPO) had been requested by Aylsham Town Council, which was eager to give people a chance to access the water and doubtful over the land's ownership.
The mill owner insisted the land came with the mill he bought in 2004.
