The Upper Lea Catchment Partnership is a group of people and organisations who are working to improve the Upper Lea for people and for wildlife. The partnership was formed in 2014 and includes a wide range of organisations, from local community groups, parish councils and landowners to water companies and government agencies.
The partnership meets formally three times a year to review progress and discuss future projects; more informal meetings take place more regularly. The partnership is being ‘hosted’ by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, who brought the partnership together. Their role is to organize 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 them with any queries about the partnership.
The Upper Lea Catchment Partnership is supported by volunteer Upper Lea River Champion Patrick McNeill, based in the Wheathampstead area.
