River and Pond Restoration

River and pond restoration aims to restore waterbodies that have been heavily modified to a more natural state in order to improve habitats and amenity value.

A key legislative driver for this is the Water Framework Directive which is increasingly beiong cited by the Environment Agency is citing this to drive environmental improvements to sites on the back of proposed development.

Weetwood has undertaken a number of river restoration and pond restoration studies.

These have included the development of proposals to restoring a heavily modified concrete channel to a more natural state to improve river habitat and increasing amenity and desirability of a proposed hotel and resort, and channel improvements associated with retail developments.
