Title: Hogsmill catchment landscape assessment
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
In October 1993 the National Rivers Authority Thames Region commissioned WS Atkins Planning Consultants to carry out a strategic and detailed landscape assessment of the Hogsmill Catchment, which includes nearly 20 kilometres of watercourse. The main river rises as a spring at Ewell and flows north for 10 kilometres before entering the Thames at Kingston. The principal tributaries are the Bonesgate Stream, Green Lanes Stream and Surbiton Stream. The landscape assessment will form part of a wide ranging investigation of the Hogsmill catchment currently being undertaken with a view to implementing major river restoration and environmental enhancement works funded from the Flood Defence capital budget. The catchment has been chosen as a pilot project, to be progressed from initial studies to implemented works and used as a model for a programme of similar projects in other catchments.
