Title: Achieving positive gains from watercourses in new development
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: good practice note 3
This Environment Agency Good Practice Note describes the rich potential offered by watercourses. A healthy river or stream corridor can be the focal point of a new development, adding to the quality of life of local people. Well-designed developments use watercourses and the space around them: to manage flood risk; to provide urban greenways; to maintain an area where wildlife can flourish; to enhance the landscape and educational value of the area; to increase the desirability and marketability of the finished development.
