The UK & Ireland Saltmarsh Restoration Handbook describes all types of saltmarsh restoration techniques, providing guidance on target setting, success criteria, project timelines, licencing and policy considerations and post-development monitoring.
NatureScot has also undertaken substantial work to pull together guidance in their Marine and Coastal Enhancement Guidance Report. The project report associated with the guidance document (Chambers et al., 2022) provides a substantial amount of further guidance on saltmarsh enhancement and experience from case studies.
SMEEF has also supported projects involving saltmarsh protection and restoration. Check out this case study on Udale Bay.
