River Thames Scheme Statutory Consultation

Closes 4 Mar 2024

Opened 22 Jan 2024


Have a look at our River Thames Scheme Consultation StoryMaps website and share your views on the scheme. 

The River Thames Scheme is designed to unlock the economic, health and environmental benefits of the river between Egham and Teddington.

It will respond to the urgent challenges of flooding, reflecting the long history of flooding in this area. It will also provide access to green open spaces and sustainable travel routes; encourage inclusive economic growth and increase biodiversity.

Each element of the River Thames Scheme will work together to deliver benefits for communities to help them live more sustainably.

This statutory consultation is a critical step in the River Thames Scheme. All of your consultation feedback is important to us.
