The Lower Lea Valley is the area surrounding the River Lea (or Lee), which runs along the boundary of the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Newham and into the River Thames. Much of the area is included in the masterplan of London's bid for the 2012 Olympic games, which will provide a legacy of facilities for this currently run-down area. There are plans to redevelop all the derelict and underutilised parts of the valley, which will take until 2020 or beyond. The largest single redevelopment scheme in the area is Stratford City.

The Lower Lea valley is within the wider Thames Gateway regeneration area, and is part of the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation's remit.
