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 make this happen.


We are developing a plan to pin-point the problems facing the River Lea in the area and to propose actions for tackling them. Explore this site to find out about this plan, our projects, events and how you can get involved.
