Luton Lea Catchment Partnership high res FINALThe Luton Lea Catchment Partnership is a group of individuals and organisations united to improve the River Lea. From its sources in Houghton Regis, Lewsey and Leagrave through Luton to Luton Hoo Lakes, the partnership works with local people to make this happen.

The partnership has its origins in a project run by Cranfield University in 2012 and now includes a wide range of organisations, from local community groups, councils and landowners to water companies and government agencies. Read more about the partners.

The partnership is developing a plan to pin-point the problems facing the River Lea in the area and to propose actions for tackling them. The group meets formally four times a year to review progress and discuss future projects; more informal meetings take place more regularly.

The partnership is being hosted by Groundwork Luton & Bedfordshire and Cranfield University. The hosts’ role is to organise and co-ordinate the many different members of the partnership, and drive the Catchment Plan forward. They are also acting as the initial contact point for any enquiries you may have: please contact Groundwork’s Operations Manager This email address is being protected from spambots.
