Lee Valley Regional Park Authority launches web consultation

The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority (LVRPA) is urging people to share their opinions on the future development of the parkland that will stretch from Hertfordshire to the River Thames in London.

LVRPA chief executive Shaun Dawson is calling on people to give their comments on plans for the park.

"Lee Valley is a fantastic park with increasingly wide ranging projects and programmes," he said. "it is important we capture as many opinions in this final stage of the consultation as possible.

"If we are able to consult with a broad range of visitors we will be able to provide so much more when planning for the park's future. The consultation has offered some impressive ideas so far but we are keen to ensure that we engage with many more people at this final stage."

Lee Valley will own, manage and fund three venues after the London 2012 Olympic Games — the White Water Canoe Centre in Broxbourne, the VeloPark and Eton Manor (the hockey and tennis centre).

Programme lead for the consultation Rob Cairns said: "We are asking for people's views on the final stage of this consultation to provide more in-depth opinions on our visitor facilities, our biodiversity and environmental programmes and for ideas on how we can further develop our conservation and heritage areas"

Information on the draft plans is available on the Lee Valley Park consultation website.
