Speakers included Steve Colclough (Colclough & Coates Aquatic Consultants) and Steve Swain (Sustainable Places, Planning Specialist, Environment Agency).Toni Scarr (RESTORE) introduced the RESTORE project and encouraged the audience to use the Rivers by Design guide and to upload their projects onto RESTORE's interactive case study database RiverWiki. Dan Taylor from Southwark Council talked about development at Canada Water and the Bankside Urban Forest.
