How we developed the Vision

The Vision was developed with extensive involvement of stakeholders
We started in March 2015 with a Have Your Say survey, which allowed stakeholders to submit a response to three questions:

  • What do you value most about the tidal River Thames?
  • What are your top three priorities for the future of the tidal River Thames?
  • What would you like the PLA to be doing for the tidal River Thames?

Three public meetings were held in Putney, Southbank and Orsett in the spring, which saw 200 people attend and contribute to the Thames Vision.

A series of seminars took place in September and October to seek insight on the future of the River Thames. River users were invited to attend sector-specific seminars on the following themes:

  • Sport and Recreation
  • Environment and Heritage
  • Port and Infrastructure
  • Passenger Transport
  • Culture and Community
  • Inland Freight
  • Residents

A consultation on the Goals and Priority Actions for the Thames Vision ran from mid-December 2015 to mid-February 2016.

The final Thames Vision launched on 4 July 2016 and you can see it here.

The results from the Have your Say survey, the three public meetings and the consultation on the Goals and Prioirty Actions for the Thames Vision can be found here.

Engagement and partnership working with stakeholders to deliver the Vision continues.
