Project Advice and Reports

Supporting new projects

Project Advice and ReportsOften the most essential element of a river restoration or enhancement project to ensure future sucess is getting early independent advice to assess what might be possible. The River Restoration Centre can provide Project Advice and Reports to facilitate and support potential or planned river restoration projects. Centre staff regularly complete site visits to assess restoration options and provide follow up advisory notes or short reports.

Providing advice
This advice is available as a discounted service to Organisation, Individual and Student members or as part of a service level agreement between Corporate members and the Centre. We are a not-for-profit organisation therefore charges for additional time and services over and above your membership benefits are charged solely to cover our costs and to keep the Centre here for you. Usually, 3 to 5 days is sufficient to visit and report back on the potential at a site. Where budgets can't stretch to site visits RRC can often provide more general written comments on draft river restoration and enhancement proposals. This latter advice is necessarily more generic and less specific to the actual site. We can provide copies of previous option scoping studies to see what might be possible.

UK-wide project experience
Project Advice and ReportsRRC's experience is gained by being actively involved with projects that significantly advance the knowledge and understanding of river restoration: techniques and benefits. The Centre does not intend to lead further demonstration projects, as it did when first formed, but now actively supports those administered by others. Through its involvement in current work and the collation of historic information, the RRC remains at the forefront of restoration technology and can advise on state of the art practice from first hand experience. The Centre has advised on over 150 river restoration and river habitat enhancement projects, from small-scale to million-pound schemes.
