A world class visitor destination
Lee Valley Leisure Trust
Lee Valley Leisure Trust came into operation on 1 April 2015 to run 14 of the major sports venues and other sites owned by Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. The Trust is part of the Authority's aspiration to establish Lee Valley Regional Park as a world class visitor destination and commitment to utilise public funds as efficiently and effectively as possible.
The Trust's flexible management structure will ensure that the Authority's main venues and sites continue serving the region's communities and maximise commercial opportunities. It is made up of a board of nine trustees with extensive experience within business, law, sport and local government who will use their expertise to usher in a new era for the Authority.
The Trust runs the Authority’s three London 2012 venues:
