Lea Bridge Area Framework

Have your say on the new Area Framework for Lea Bridge.

Have your say - phase 2 engagement is live

We want local residents, businesses, and community groups to continue to guide and shape the vision for the future of Lea Bridge.  

Phase 2 of our public engagement is live and will run from Friday 26 November to Friday 14 January.

Share your thoughts on our draft key principles in our exhibition boards and let us know which potential projects you’d like us to prioritise by filling in our online survey.

You can also come and speak to members of the Area Regeneration Delivery Team at our drop-in event at Lea Bridge Library (in the Ground Floor Café) on Saturday 4 December between 11am and 2pm.

Why we're producing an Area Framework for Lea Bridge

We are preparing a new Area Framework for Lea Bridge and would like you to get involved. The Framework will create a vision for how Lea Bridge can grow, adapt and thrive in the future whilst building on its strengths and unique local landscape, heritage, economy and community.

The aim of the Lea Bridge Area Framework is to help coordinate change in the area and realise benefits of potential development and investment including public realm and open space improvements, climate adaptation initiatives, health facilities, community spaces and social infrastructure.

The Framework will align with the Council’s emerging Local Plan and Site Allocations as well as wider Economic Recovery work responding to the impact of Covid-19 and the Council’s response to the Climate Emergency Commission report. It will also feed into the Council’s Public Service Strategy and support in developing the strategy for 15-minute neighbourhoods in the borough.

What's happened so far

We held our first phase of public engagement in July 2021 where we asked people to share their knowledge about the area and tell us their priorities for future investment in Lea Bridge.

We received a great response and would like to thank everyone who took part.

The feedback from this phase has informed our early ideas for the framework.
