Enhancement of riverside public open space along the Thames and other UK rivers, for people and wildlife, is highlighted in updated guidance for planners and developers, now available online for the first time. 

The Estuary Edges handbook has been co-ordinated by the Thames Estuary Partnership (TEP), in collaboration with the Environment Agency (EA). Its transfer to the web has been provided by the Port of London Authority (PLA).

It gives planners and developers detailed advice on how to boost biodiversity, by replacing foreshore infrastructure made from brick, concrete and metal with more eco-friendly materials, providing vital new habitats for wildlife, such as fish, birds and insects.

It also promotes greater public awareness of improved river areas, and the opportunities linked to the placement of artistic and educational installations, including benefits for well being.
