Essential to any river restoration or enhancement project is getting early independent advice to assess what might be possible. The River Restoration Centre (RRC) can facilitate and support potential or planned river restoration projects.

Centre staff regularly visit sites to discuss restoration options. This advice is available as an at-cost service to RRC members, depending on the level of membership, or as part of a service level agreement with our Corporate and Core Funder members. We are a not-for-profit organisation therefore charges for additional time and services over and above your membership benefits are charged solely to cover our costs and to keep the RRC here for you. Where budgets can't stretch to site visits, we can provide more general written comments on draft river restoration and enhancement proposals, reviews of designs and general support by phone. 

"Thank you RRC for your input. You significantly expanded the horizons for our project at a critical juncture, and helped us to shape a strategic, integrated and sensitive environmental design".
Principal Environmental Project Manager, Environment Agency - July 2013.

 

UK-wide project experience

RRC's experience is gained by being actively involved with projects that significantly advance the knowledge and understanding of river restoration techniques and benefits. RRC does not intend to lead further demonstration projects, as it did when first formed, but now actively supports those administered and delivered by others. Through its involvement in current work and the collation of historic information, the RRC remains at the forefront of river restoration and can advise on state of the art practice from first-hand experience and project reviews.
