What guidance is available for saltmarsh restoration?

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.

The current key guidance documents relevant to enhancement in Scotland are listed in the checklist – use this to create a bespoke work list for your group.
