A Guide to Sensitive Planning, Design and Management
Where environmental values are high and encroachment would be particularly damaging, access may have to be controlled, limited or even restricted. Where access to aquatic areas is appropriate, it demands careful planning, design and management.
This document, another in the Stewardship Series, provides a guide to balancing conservation with planning, design and management of access near aquatic areas.
