Rivers by Design
Rivers by Design illustrates the crucial role that planners, architects and developers can play in achieving sustainabledevelopment that meets the needs of local people and the local environment through river restoration.
It offers practical advice and step-by-step guidance on how to get started in incorporating river restoration and water management in development projects in order to maximise their ecological, social and economic benefits.
A series of case studies demonstrates successful examples of how well located, planned and designed development can increase ecological quality, reduce flood risk and create social and economic benefits such as improved recreational facilities and public spaces.
