River restoration assessment of the STREAM project - executive summary (STREAM10)

Works included bank re-profiling to a more natural slope, non-native tree felling and native tree planting, reconnecting the river to its floodplain, and enhancing currently poor marginal habitat, which is known to be critical to fish and invertebrates in lowland rivers.
The key objective of the restoration work was to demonstrate restoration techniques suitable for recreating favourable condition for the River Avon SAC species and habitats.
