We feel that the Sustainable Communities criteria put forward under 'Natural environment and conservation' are suitable. We note one criterion for the protection, maintenance and enhancement of the foreshore. We would recommend that, when considering schemes against this criterion, you consult our Estuary Edges: Ecological Design Guidance available on our website at: http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/business/sectors/100745.aspx. The guidance focuses on the ecological benefits of recreating or maintaining natural/semi-natural waterside margins and provides some useful case study examples.
