Sustainable Management of Urban Rivers and Floodplains - Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)
The Sustainable Management of Urban Rivers and Floodplains document was adopted in 2007 to address issues of water quality, neglected habitat and recreational use of the rivers and watercourses in Birmingham.
The purpose of the document is to
- provide guidance for developments located within river corridors
- provide policies to encourage better links between land-use planning and water management, access and the visual amenity of river corridors
- manage development on bank-side locations in a sustainable way for both the community and river ecology
- be consistent with the objectives of the European Union's Water Framework Directive
