The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority's remit, described in the 1966 Act, embraces just about every conceivable aspect of leisure, sport and recreation, including nature conservation and the protection and enhancement of the natural environment.
The Authority is able to exercise this duty by itself, or by acting in partnership with or seeking the services of companies, individuals or other bodies. This partnership power is an important part of the Authority's approach today, working with both the public and private sector.
The organisation is not a local authority and is not governed by local authority legislation. However, it often adopts what is considered “best practice” by local authorities.
