The 'London' Lea a complex urban river

Welcome to the website of the 'London' Lea, the part of the River from the M25 to the Thames and the home of the formal document which authorities have to pay attention to.  The Catchment Plan will improve the river for wildlife and for people. It will also help us to meet the UK's obligations under the Water Framework Directive.
