Preparation and presentation of habitat replacement cost estimates. Using examples of the restoration and creation of coastal and floodplain grazing marsh, reedbeds and lagoons (ENRR345)

This 1999 report aimed to:

  • develop a general framework for the compilation and presentation of habitat replacement cost estimates;
  • encourage the recording of all costs associated with habitat replacement;
  • enhance clarity of understanding and transferability of estimates to different site locations;
  • research available estimates for three habitat types (coastal and floodplain grazing marsh, reedbed and coastal lagoon); and
  • present these in the preferred format.

The framework was provisional and further application was expected for the costing procedure to be refined. The report sets out a process that could be useful to follow in developing cost estimates and showed a way of presenting the estimates. Finally, it provided some estimates from a few real case studies.
