This study provides part of the evidence base informing the consideration of possible compensatory measures within the Severn Tidal Power feasibility study and focuses upon the feasibility of large scale intertidal habitat provision outside of the Severn Estuary. It has also reviewed the potential extent of areas suitable for mudflat and saltmarsh habitat behind existing sea walls within the Severn Estuary. Issues associated with the potential effects on specific habitats, bird or other protected species interests are outside the scope of this project and are being investigated through other studies.
