Welcome to the Thames Strategy - Kew to Chelsea

The tidal River Thames runs through the heart of London and touches the lives of most people in the Capital – whether as a focus of economic activity, a place where people live, work and play; a natural environment to observe an abundant array of flora and fauna or simply as a source of inspiration, refreshment and pride.

Against this backdrop, the Thames Strategy – Kew to Chelsea seeks to promote the River Thames and to encourage appropriate development along its banks as it becomes an increasingly ecologically diverse, clean and more socially accessible environment.
