River corridor surveys

Definition (

River corridor survey is a nationally recognised methodology often used by the Environment Agency to inform decision making on habitat quality and appropriate management. The term ‘River Corridor' is generally used to describe a stretch of water course, its banks and neighbouring land. As a rule of thumb the river corridor is defined as land and vegetation within 50m of the river bank but this will depend on how the nearby land is affected by the water course. (Greenwillows)
