The Thames Landscape Strategy is a 100-year blueprint for the River Thames between Hampton and Kew.
Written by Kim Wilkie and orignially published in 1994, it is an analysis of the character of the river landscape providing a vision for the natural and man-made elements of the landscape – an evidence base which draws together the history, topography, culture, politics and wildlife of the river corridor to form the basis for and shape future policy, management, projects and design.
Over two years, the TLS carried out a series of consultation activities to draw together the evidence needed to update the 1994 report. A Draft Report was made available for comment over an 8 week period in the summer of 2012 before the final document could be published.
The Strategy area has also been extended since 1994, upstream to Weybridge – embracing four new and distinct character reaches. Please note that the consultation for these new reaches will be carried out at a later date and attached to the main report as an addendum.
