DRAFT - Water Appraisal Guidance; Assessing the Costs and Benefits for River Basin Management Planning

This guide is being developed to assist the assessment of benefits for economic appraisal of measures which affect the water environment. This can be used for River Basin Management Planning and other disciplines where relevant.


A number of tools have been developed to standardise the format of an appraisal and can be used alongside this guide. These are the:

  • Water Appraisal Summary Table
  • Measures, bundles and costs sheets
  • Stage 1 valuation sheet
  • Stage 2 valuation template
  • Review of benefits for value transfer table

Please contact the Environment Agency with any suggestions to change the guidance or for more information.
