The Benefits of Inland Waterways Final Report

OGorman et al/Jacobs for DEFRA and the Inland Waterways Advisory Council

Inland waterways make a valuable contribution to peoples’ quality of life. The benefits they provide are diverse and include transport, recreation opportunities, drainage services, regeneration benefits and non-use values1. The full range of benefits is rarely considered in decisions over the use or development of inland waterways and their surrounding areas; this can result in incorrect or inappropriate decisions being made.
