Welcome to the Crane Valley Partnership

The Crane Valley Partnership (CVP) is an unincorporated association of charities, community groups, borough councils, private businesses & government agencies in the five boroughs within the River Crane catchment area (London Boroughs of Harrow, Hillingdon, Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond upon Thames). The Partnership aims to restore one of London’s most natural river systems, conserve surrounding habitats and improve public access so that nearby communities can enjoy contact with the natural world.

Our mission :

  • To raise awareness and support action for conservation, restoration and new approaches to design and management of the River Valley. 
  • To help communities take a sustainable approach to managing and improving the River Crane and its tributaries.
  • To improve and protect the biodiversity of the area.
  • To maximise the use of the river corridor as a resource for healthier living and educational activities for local people.
  • To promote connectivity along the river corridor.
