The Thames Landscape Strategy is one of three sub-regional partnerships for the Thames in the greater London area, whose focus is the remarkable river corridor between Hampton and Kew. Launched in 1994, the strategy is a 100-year blueprint for the Thames, whose vision is to conserve, enhance and promote for the future, one of the world’s great urban landscapes. To achieve its aims, the strategy brings together a partnership of statutory and non-statutory organisations, local groups and individuals to inform strategic policy such as the Water Framework Directive and TE2100 to implement a broad range of projects and management proposals such as London’s Arcadia.
These are linked with the TLS’s proposals to adapt to climate change, locally finding solutions to manage the increasing risk of flooding through the Restoration of the Lost Floodplain projects.
