Stakeholder's Forum for River Residents

Have your say on our local waterways

As part of his ĎLondon Planí, Mayor Ken Livingstone has established a special Stakeholderís Forum. Designed to provide input for a Steering Group, the forum is designed to enable all parties with an interest in Londonís waterways to voice their opinions and suggestions. This Steering Group will, in turn, produce and forward guidelines to all the relevant London councils.

Bearing in mind our riverside location, it is considered that many local residents will have a vested interest in the Riverís preservation and usage.

Major items of concern recently reported to the Steering Group have been the
issue of excessively tall buildings close to the Thames and canals, the
problems of public access to and from the Thames, whether by land or river,
with little to no places for boaters to moor along the city's stretch and
beyond ; and the disastrous disappearance of boating businesses, so vital to
the safe operation and maintenance of the boats, under pressure of
development from councils and businesses alike.

The Stakeholderís Forum meets twice a year and all who wish to be notified of future meetings may contact Kevin Reid, by email or post - City Hall 4th Floor, The Queens Walk, London, SE1 2AA.

Any issues that arise between the meetings can be sent via the local Stakeholder Representative, Nigel Moore at Ridgeways Wharf, Brent Way, Brentford, Middlesex, TW8 8ES or email
