Title: River Thames recreation strategy
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
The River Thames is used for leisure by many thousands of people for a variety of leisure pursuits ranging from fishing to pleasure cruises from competitive canoeing to informal strolling. It is, arguably, the largest single leisure asset in the region. As the body responsible for recreational use of the river and adjacent land, the NRA Thames Region is a major player in outdoor leisure. The phase I study will, therefore, consist of 3 parts. The first part of the study will be concerned with finding out the internal policies and views of NRA staff. The second part, run in parallel with the first, will be concerned with examining the external, market expectations of the NRAs role in leisure on the Thames. The third phase is then concerned with arriving at a consensus on the way forward for the NRA based on a synthesis of the markets views which is consistent with the statutory role of the NRA.
