We have a great opportunity to make better use of the area’s abundant natural environment – the riverbanks, canals, lakes, nature reserves, and vast open spaces that make Thamesmead unique among London’s landscape.

We will continue to work in partnership with Thames 21, who run waterway clean-ups and community projects. We’ve completed improvement works to the Thames Path and the first stage of works to the Ridgeway with Bexley and Greenwich councils.

We now have exciting plans to make Thamesmead into one of London’s most bio-diverse and sustainable urban living environments, increasing the number of people who visit and enjoy Thamesmead’s unique parks and waterways.

This means we're putting in place a long-term plan and adequate resources to maintain, enhance, and improve this wonderful landscape and valuable natural asset.
