Title: Lower Thames LEAP (Hurley to Teddington) : 3rd annual review December 2001
Author: Environment Agency Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This plan covers the River Thames between Hurley and Teddington, a distance of 64.5km. Also included are main river tributaries of the Thames: Bisham Brook; The Cut; Chalvey Ditch; Abbey River; River Ash; and Portlane Brook. The ordinary watercourses in the plan area include Jealotts Hill Stream, Salt Hill Stream, Rythe Ditch and the Longford River. The Lower Thames LEAP area extends over 422km2 including areas of south-west London, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Surrey. Approximately 513,000 people live within the plan area. The eastern half of the plan area is predominantly suburban, whilst the western half is more rural, with Maidenhead, Windsor, Slough and Bracknell being the main urban areas. The Lower Thames LEAP area, and particularly the River Thames, constitutes a resource of great environmental, recreational and historic value. It is however, a resource which has been much altered by intense human activity and is likely to be subjected to increasing pressure in the future.
