WORKING FOR THE SUSTAINABLE
FUTURE OF THE ESTUARY
The Thames Estuary Partnership (TEP) is an independent charity that improves and builds understanding of one of the world’s most famous rivers.
We bring together key stakeholders in the tidal Thames, working in partnership to improve the river both for London’s inhabitants and for the wildlife that it is home to. We work with governmental bodies, port and local authorities, riverside developers, NGOs, community groups, passionate individuals and the wider public to maximise our positive impact on this unique river.
Heather Hilburn, TEP Chief Executive awarded Honorary Fellowship of the RIBA
I am delighted to announce that our Chief Executive, Heather Hilburn, has been awarded an Honorary Fellowship of the Royal Institute of British Architects (FRIBA). This award is given to individuals who are recognised for outstanding achievements and thought leadership in the natural and built environments, including urban regeneration, culture, design, and learning and engagement.
This award is a reminder of the wealth of expertise that Heather brings to TEP, including planning, policy and development, impact investing as well as a deep understanding of heritage and cultural institutions. The depth of her knowledge will help us achieve our objectives in that very unique space we work in, where the land and sea come together.
Heather is well placed to help us build a strong partnership across many disciplines, sectors and communities and ensure our work is investment ready.
