In order to study the benefits, the Shoots and Cardiff – West schemes were launched by the Sustainable Development commission. A national opinion poll is yet another method that has been followed by the team so as to notice the interest of the public towards this option. The other method to assess the benefit is to associate the biodiversity with the Severn Estuary. This is a way to notice the probable benefits to the environment and surrounding habitat. Scenario analysis is one particular method that had applied two forms of approaches – centralized and decentralized and streamline and resilient. By this way, the benefits can be identified and tabulated in the appropriate areas within the column (Exeter University, 2011).
Methods used to assess impacts
On top of benefits, it is the impact that needs to be studied thoroughly before the step for implementation. The main scheme that was investigated to assess the impact is t Cardiff – Weston barrage (CSC, 2013). The government demands the strategic presence in the proposal. This enables the team to decide on the viability. The other method was the relation with the green energy. As the tidal energy is the choice for Severn barrage, the investment project is studied by means of forecast analysis (Hain, 2012). This will give sufficient information on the probable prospects through which the economy would be uplifted. Finally, it is the impact that the project would have on multiple industries like logistics, HR and civil professionals. These methods tend to give maximum knowledge on the ways to determine the feasibility of this project (Pryor, 2013).
