The Thames Landscape Strategy is a sub-regional partnership for the River Thames between Hampton and Kew in West London. It brings together a partnership of organisations, individuals and local groups to provide strategic guidance for the Thames corridor. The partnership acts as a catalyst to implement project work on the ground, and as a day to day link between the authorities, the local communities and the vision of the Strategy.
The Thames Landscape Strategy vision is to
‘Conserve, promote and enhance for the future,
one of the world’s great river landscapes between Hampton and Kew’
This is achieved through the Thames Landscape Strategy Partnership objectives:
The Thames Landscape Strategy is about people, and the ways they connect with their physical, aesthetic, historic, natural, recreational and spiritual landscape. At the core of the Thames Landscape Strategy is the acknowledgement that landscape assessment is based on more than aesthetic or heritage interest alone. In evaluating what is special about a place, people’s perceptions and patterns of attachment must be recognised.
The Thames Landscape Strategy provides a unique opportunity to conserve and enhance this unique landscape for the benefit of all for the next 100-years.
‘Landscape is not only seen with the eye, it is felt in the heart.’
