This is the summary version from a report (prepared by Risk Policy Analysts) on a case study of an appraisal system for the Environment Agencys Beckingham Marshes estate. This is part of the Comprehensive Project Evaluation (CPE) study jointly commissioned by the Environment Agency and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The paper aims to describe a draft appraisal system so that it could be discussed in depth at a workshop on 14 December. The intention then is that the draft system will be refined accordingly in the light of these discussions so that it could be readily applied at the Agencys Estates and possibly to other Estates. The aim of this case study is to develop an appraisal system to aid the Agencys estates managers determine which environmental measures should justifiably be implemented on their estates and to provide an objective measure of environmental performance on their estate that could be viewed alongside its financial performance. The case study focuses on appraising the costs and benefits of a number of possible improvements in nature conservation and recreation opportunities that the estate manager had identified on the basis of a Site Management Plan for the Beckingham Marshes estate.
