Port of London Authority
Tidal Thames


Use of the Thames could be transformed over the next 20 years, according to the Thames Vision Goals and Priority Actions document that we have just launched for consultation.

We have been developing the Thames Vision with members of the public, river stakeholders and other organisations across London and
the south east for the last ten months. The six Goals and 24 Priority Actions that have emerged are the heart of a plan to develop the Thames over the next 20 years.

Among the goals are: the busiest ever Port of London; 20 million passenger trips a year; more goods moved by river; the cleanest river since the Industrial Revolution;
and more people enjoying sport
and recreation.

“When we started this project in March we suspected there was
un-tapped potential in the

Thames,” said PLA chief executive, Robin Mortimer. “What we’ve found, working with hundreds of people and more than 70 organisations, has surpassed our expectations.

“The cargo port the biggest it’s ever been and a river used for double the number of passenger trips are great goals to aim for.

We can combine this with environmental improvement and drawing more people to the river to enjoy sport and cultural attractions. This is about opening our eyes to what the great River Thames can offer right in the heart of London and the South East.”
