Thames Landscape Strategy

Our Vision

  • To champion community action by bringing together a partnership of organisations, individuals and community groups that have an interest in the Arcadian Thames.
  • To implement the policies, projects and management proposals set out in the Thames Landscape Strategy and to develop new initiatives and opportunities.
  • To improve sites of nature conservation value and create new opportunities for biodiversity and flood risk management.
  • To protect and enhance historic buildings, historic parks and gardens, landscapes and ancient monuments.
  • To raise awareness of the Thames Landscape Strategy, increase educational opportunities and promote understanding of the Thames environment and ways of protecting, conserving and enhancing that environment.

‘Landscape is not only seen with the eye, it is felt in the heart.’ 


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 this organisation, is  the acknowledgement that landscape assessment is based on more than aesthetic or heritage interest alone.
