The Environment Agency (Thames Region) has for many years promoted nature conservation through its'Flood Defence Committee, redressing some of the adverse legacies of past schemes. In doing so it collaborates with other Agency functions and external organisations. a series of ‘audits’ were undertaken, by RRC, of projects carried out primarily since 1989 mostly through the Thames Region’s Flood Defence Enhancement Programme, as well as those promoted through fisheries, conservation and landscape architects sections. Twenty projects from small enhancements to more complex restoration schemes were chosen which demonstrate examples of bestpractice, innovation and design improvements within river management. The audits give an independent review of some of the region’s extensive array of rehabilitation schemes. Projects audited showed in this report are: Bear Brook - Aylesbury; River Blackwater - Nr. Frimley; River Chess - Nr. Chesham; River Cole - Sevenhampton; River Colne - Watford; River Crane - Twickenham; River Dun - Froxfield; Gatwick Stream - Crawley; Kyd Brook - Nr Bromley; River Mole - Westhumble; River Pool - Catford; River Ravensboume - Bromley; River Roding - Redbridge and River Thame - Winchendon.
