The Father Thames Trust is a registered charity that raises funds and supplies grants to support the Thames Landscape Strategy and its projects.

Catchment Based Approach

Thames Landscape Strategy works using a ‘catchment-based’ approach aims to deliver and raise awareness of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and what this means for our rivers, estuaries and coastal waters. 

The TLS region is in two different catchments: 

The Tidal Thames

The Lower Thames (Maidenhead to Teddington)

Thames Estuary 2100 (TE2100)

The Thames Estuary 2100 project (TE2100), led by the Environment Agency, was formed in 2002 to develop a comprehensive action plan to manage flood risk for the Tidal Thames This was the first government action plan to explicitly deal with climate change.

The River Thames Scheme

The River Thames scheme will work to reduce the consequences of a flood event between Datchet and Teddington. In the TLS region, it is planned to modify weirs to allow water to move through quicker during flood events and to increase the resilience of properties and landscapes located in the floodplain.
