Public meeting about River Thames
A public meeting to discuss current and future matters about the tidal Thames will take place on Wednesday 19 May. It will start at 6.30pm onboard the ship HQS Wellington, which is moored at Temple Stairs, Victoria Embankment, WC2.
The meeting is an opportunity to put questions and ideas about the River direct to senior managers at the Port of London Authority (PLA).
PLA chief executive, Richard Everitt will host the meeting with chief harbour master, David Snelson. They will be happy to answer questions about the tidal Thames, including safety, use of the river, and PLA operations.
PLA chief executive Richard Everitt said:
"This meeting will interest people who care about the River which runs through our capital city. From safety through to leisure and recreational issues and use of the river to carry more cargo: this is an opportunity to discuss our work and for us to listen to people’s concerns and ideas."
Anyone interested in the tidal Thames today and tomorrow is welcome to attend the meeting. The nearest tube station is Temple, which is immediately opposite HQS Wellington.
