Title: Upper Thames catchment management plan consultation report (draft) November 1994
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
The total length of the River Thames covered in this plan is 31.5 km with an area of approximately 1000 km2, which represents about 9% of Thames Regions total catchment area. The area identified in this plan as the Upper Thames lies mainly within the counties of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire, with a small part of Oxfordshire in the south east corner. It covers the complete length of the River Thames and its tributaries upstream of Buscot Lock: River Leach; River Coin; Marston Meysey Brook; Ampney Brook; River Chum; Swill Brook; River Key; River Ray; Share Ditch; Bydemill Brook; River Cole. The purpose of the consultation phase is to: consolidate and confirm the range and extent of catchment uses; obtain views on the (relative importance of) issues facing the water environment; and begin the process of identifying and implementing action plans. This document is therefore part of a process that will enable a shared vision of the catchment to be developed which will guide all NRA activities for the next 5 to 10 years. This vision and its supporting strategies will be presented in the Final Report.
