The amenity benefits of the Port of London Authority’s stretch of the River Thames

This report investigates and, whenever possible, values the amenity benefits the Port of London Authority’s stretch of the Thames delivers to residents, day-trippers and tourists. The report was launched on Monday 7th September 2015, on the occasion of the start of London International Shipping Week.

The analysis begins by looking at the economic activity that occurs in Thames-side wards. It proceeds to explore the same areas as homes to the population and the premium they pay for living close to the river. The report then examines the importance of the Thames and its banks as a location day-trippers and tourists visit. Finally, it examines the towpath and river’s role as an area where sport is practiced.
