The objective of this work is to develop a short guidance note that will help those tasked with managing river channels to get a better understanding of how a channel will respond to a 'do nothing', or reduced maintenance, scenario. The work will highlight available evidence and will be structured to provide an overview of the issues that need to be considered when thinking about reducing the frequency of maintenance.
