Thursday 16th November 2017

Event Partners:

At one of the world’s most sustainable venues: The Crystal, Royal Victoria Dock, London, E16 1GB


London owes its growth and success to the Thames. Today, the river is used by over 1.25 million Londoners and continues to be an essential gateway for the city’s economic prosperity.

The Thames Estuary Partnership’s annual forum this year looks at the state of London’s lifeline today and asks ‘what’s next?’ for the Thames.

Programme available here.


Join us at the Crystal, the iconic conference space in the Royal Docks to hear about the biggest infrastructure projects in the corridor:
The Lower Thames Crossing, Tideway Tunnel, crossings to Thamesmead and Rotherhithe and Crossrail 2.


What about the environment?

Development and the estuary edge, Thamesmead development, Marine Spatial Planning and the PLA’s environmental vision.


Are we safe from flooding in London and out into the Estuary?

Hear from a member of the Thames Regional Flood & Coastal Committee, TEAM 2100 and the challenge of SUDs.


What sort of development should we be doing?

Ebbsfleet and Peabody will be revealing their plans, and Create Streets might have some advice for all developers.


What’s the role of the river in the Mayor’s transport strategy and can it be delivered?

Transport for London, Tarmac and Peter Brett will be exploring these issues.


And what about skills?

Thames Skills Academy, Tideway and Ch2m will be telling you about their initiatives.


The event will round off with presentations from Mark Jenkinson, Director of City Account Management, Siemens and Martin Gettings, Head of Sustainability, Canary Wharf Group followed by a drinks reception.
