A public consultation asking for views on new plans which respond to the challenges of flooding and creating more access to open green spaces and sustainable travel routes has entered its final week.
The River Thames Scheme launched a consultation for feedback on plans which include a new flood channel which will reduce the risk of flooding to homes, businesses, and infrastructure, while also providing habitat for wildlife and a new feature in the landscape for recreation. The consultation closes on 20 December.
River Thames Scheme project director Jeanne Capey said:
“There’s just one week to go of this consultation and I urge anyone interested in the scheme to visit our website to find out more about the proposals and share their thoughts with us. Peoples’ feedback on our proposals will help us develop plans and deliver improvements which benefit the local community and the environment.”
The River Thames Scheme represents a new landscape-based approach to creating healthier, more resilient, and more sustainable communities by reducing the risk of flooding and creating high quality natural environments.
