River Corridor Surveys

The term ‘River Corridor' is generally used to describe a stretch of watercourse, its banks and neighbouring land. As a rule of thumb the river corridor is defined as land and vegetation within 50m of the river bank but this will depend on how the nearby land is affected by the watercourse.

The output from such surveys is presented in the form of sketch drawings of lengths of the watercourse marked up with vegetation types and features as laid down in the River Corridor Survey Handbook. The drawings will be supported by photographs, descriptive text and species lists where appropriate.
