Chiswick residents are invited to make their views known about a draft strategy for the development of the this stretch of the Thames
This visionary study was conceived by a steering committee representing the West London River Group, the riparian boroughs, Greater London Authority, Government Office for London, English Heritage, Port of London Authority and the Environment Agency. A team of consultants, led by WS Atkins, has worked with the Steering Committee in the creation of the Strategy.
The Strategy also takes into account any issue which, although falling outside the Thames Policy Area, has an impact on the river, for example, high buildings, important views or transport networks.
The Draft Strategy was formally launched for public consultation on 23 July by Darren Johnson, the London Mayor's Environment Advisor. Your comments are welcomed on all aspects of the Strategy until 10 October.
You are also invited to attend the riverside open forum to be held on 29 September at Pier House, Corney Reach, Chiswick, 10am-4pm.
