Details

The river maintenance pilots trialled a new regulatory approach to make it easier for riparian owners to dredge to remove silt from a main river themselves where they chose to do so. The pilots also aimed to make it easier for people to find out about planned maintenance by the Environment Agency (EA).

The findings report details what happened during the pilots and what EA has learned.
