River bank stabilisation guide
The careful design of bank stabilisation and protection is crucial to maintain the special landscape character of the Broads.
The Broads Authority is keen to see the use of more subtle forms of bank protection in appropriate areas. This guide is intended to give landowners advice on the best method to use and provides important information on how to achieve the same high standard that the Authority sets for its own work.
The guide focuses on protecting an eroding river bank from the natural effects of wave or other action and covers these topics:
- Landscape and wildlife
- Practical considerations
- Permissions and notices
- Stabilisation options
- Pre application questionnaire
