How to Use the Thames Landscape Strategy in the Development Control Process

The Thames Landscape Strategy is set out in a report known as the Thames Landscape Strategy 2012 Review and should be used to inform development control decisions, management plans and projects along the river.  The Thames Landscape Strategy is free to use by anyone – planners, members of the public and statutory agencies.  Click here for a guide on how you can use the TLS.


Donate, Volunteer, or Employ the TLS

There are so many different ways that you can get involved in helping to conserve the river corridor between Weybridge, Hampton and Kew ranging from  making a donation, volunteering, or working with the TLS.   The Thames Landscape Strategy is the main provider of practical conservation work along the Thames in our region clocking up a staggering 310,000 volunteer hours in just over ten years.  This work relies on the generous contributions of our supporters.  Click here to find out how you can help by either volunteering or donating to our charity The Father Thames Trust.
