Title: Our vision for the Thames Gateway : a showcase for sustainable development
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Transforming the Thames Gateway into an area of thriving and prominent communities has become the UKs most exciting and important development project. The Governments Sustainable Communities Plan has set targets for 120,000 new homes and 180,000 new jobs in the Gateway by 2016. These plans should be seen as an opportunity, rather than as a threat to our environment. Large-scale expansion of this kind means we can plan for the future in a way that doesnt happen with piecemeal development. The Environment Agency has a leading role in ensuring the Gateway provides a healthy, safe and attractive environment for the people who live and work there.
