encompassing the following
• Potential to improve conveyance and reduce sedimentation and improve the ecology of the Beverley Brook.
• Potential to undertake river restoration in areas where the Beverley Brook has previously been re-sectioned or modified, and where it currently flows through areas of open space.
• Potential to remove areas of old or redundant bank protection/structures and re-naturalise the channel banks.
• Potential to undertake habitat creation or enhancement works.
Objectives carried out (2012):
Flood and coastal risk management scheme to repair tidal sluice incorporating fish pass and reedbed.
At the lower section of Beverley Brook the flow is diverted into a series of culvert which outfall into the Thames and only 20% of the flow continues down the main channel. As a result the flows are low and there is a lot of siltation and lack of inchannel processes. Drivers: Biodiversity Action Plan, Water Framework Directive.
Monitoring surveys and results
Improvement of structural operability enables review of operation regimes to minimise the requirement for further improvement works. Whilst replacement of existing structures is not a sustainable measure, the operating regime that follows increases the long term condition of the river and structure.
