Abstract

These reports have been undertaken in connection with the Thames Estuary 2100 project being undertaken by the Environment Agency which is looking at the social, economic and environmental impacts of climate change and flood management in the Thames Estuary over the next 1090 years. The reports consider the potential impacts in tidal London and relevant parts of Kent and Essex. Landscape characterisations have been undertaken in 36 sub-regional areas from west London to the coast. The characterisations considered physical, ecological, recreation, perceptional and social aspects of landscape and identified key features and characteristics for each sub-region. Landscape capacity and sensitivity has been assessed for each sub-region in relation to four future scenarios. The recommendations will feed into flood management decision making across the region.
