Thames Landscape Strategy Document

2012 Update

The Thames Landscape Strategy report was a pioneering document that set out to celebrate and understand the exceptional landscape character of the Arcadian Thames, creating a 100 year strategic vision for the river corridor that has stood the test of time.

The Thames Landscape Strategy (written by Kim Wilkie and published in 1994,) 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.
