The greatest strength of the Thames Landscape Strategy is the partnership of riparian organisations, local groups and friends. The TLS works through this partnership to inform strategic policy and to ensure that the aims of the Strategy are implemented on the ground. The Thames Landscape Strategy 1994 report provides a vision for the river corridor between Hampton and Kew. Throughout 2007 the TLS partnership has been strengthening the way that the Strategy works within the development control process in light of recent changes to the planning system.
The TLS has been actively involved in the development of several high profile strategic plans that impact on the river corridor. The TLS sits on the Water Framework Directive Thames Region Liaison Panel, representing the three sub-regional partnerships for the River Thames across London and the wider Thames Estuary. In addition the TLS has actively participated in the development of the strategic flood risk management plan for the River Thames through the Thames Estuary 2100 study.
At a local level the TLS has been a key contributor in the production of both the Brentford and Kingston Area Action Plans. The TLS has ensured that the principles contained in the Mayor’s London Plan Blue Ribbon Annex have been incorporated into action plans to protect and strengthen the way that these two riverside communities will manage their river, boating and infrastructure for the next 20 years. The TLS also comments on planning applications that impact on the river corridor.
The TLS continues to provide guidance to a range of strategic partnerships including the River Thames Alliance, the Tidal Thames Habitat Action Group, River Thames Education Network and the Thames Tideway Strategic Study.
