London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL) has received outline planning permission for a scheme aimed at bringing 3,200 new jobs to a previously undelivered key employment site east of London Luton Airport.

New jobs, improved public open space

New Century Park is part of the new London Luton Airport Enterprise Zone, supported by SEMLEP, which will deliver up to 7,200 new jobs and inward investment to support economic growth across the sub-region.

The proposed development will include investment in improved facilities in the northern section of Wigmore Valley Park, to include:

  • a new play area
  • refurbished Wigmore Pavilion
  • a new, larger area of replacement public open space

Gaining access: a new road

Plans for commercial development at New Century Park have been discussed for more than 20 years but not delivered by the previous landowners due to the difficulty of providing access.

The new access road will run to New Century Park from a new roundabout on the A1081, and around the western, northern and eastern perimeters of London Luton Airport.

Consultation on the proposals

As part of the pre-application process in 2017, we held a number of stakeholder workshops, public exhibitions and hosted a static display of the plans to outline the proposals and gather feedback from the community.

The exhibition boards displayed are still available to view.

The Luton Investment Framework

New Century Park is the latest exciting development in the continuing delivery of the Luton Investment Framework which will help attract much-needed new jobs and improve life opportunities for local people.

Already, Luton is well on track to bring investment exceeding £4.5bn into the borough over 20 years.
Wholly-owned by Luton Council, LLAL is a key delivery partner.

LLAL’s commitment

LLAL is committed to improving the public open space available in the area to local residents, and to ensuring that there is the least possible disruption to airport operations, businesses and local residents as this key development is brought forward.
