21. Form and habitat improvements

Theme: Water Quality, Habitats and Wildlife


  • That whatever the flow level, the river and its associated habitats, including banks and floodplains, are managed to support chalk stream species
  • That water quality, temperature and river bed quality are such that they support chalk stream ecology

Project description

To carry out channel form and habitat improvements on the Stevenage Brook.

This section of the Stevenage Brook could be enhanced by carrying out various restorations works, including increasing the variety of flow using deflectors. This would add variety to the flow of the channel, promote scouring of the river bed and recreate a more natural meandering channel.
