The 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 improve and conserve the river's health.

We are continually working to identify the problems facing the River Lea and taking action to tackle them.

LoveLEA: explore it, use it, protect it.

The Luton Lea Catchment Partnership runs a wide range of projects for local communities around the River Lea. Projects empower residents to take ownership of, and enjoy the River Lea, to help maintain its health so it can be a thriving habitat and a play for residents to enjoy. The River Lea makes its way from Houghton Regis, Lewsey, and Leagrave before going on to London.

This website will be updated with current projects, and if you want to get involved or know of a community group who'd like to take part, please do get in touch.
