Proposals for Bartlett Square

London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL), working in partnership with its shareholder Luton Borough Council, has received planning permission for 2.5 acres of commercial development off Kimpton Road, next to Luton Airport Parkway station and the proposed Luton Direct Air Rail Transit (Luton DART) scheme.

Proposed development for this £100 million key employment site at Bartlett Square will provide up to 2,000 jobs for local people, and includes investment in::

  • new hotel: up to 170 bedrooms or serviced apartments
  • 240,000 sq ft high-quality and flexible office space
  • complementary retail of 6,000 sq ft
  • on-site multi-storey car park serving the offices

Benefits to the community

Bartlett Square is part of the 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.

Significant benefits to the community would include:

  • additional employment through local contracts such as facilities management
  • further temporary employment during construction
  • modern and flexible business space to support Luton’s economic growth
  • modern hotel with local amenities and function facilities
  • improved rail station access
  • new high-quality public realm linking the rail station with local businesses and residents


Work on the first phase of the Bartlett Square development could start by late 2021. The development would be brought forward in further phases, with the first businesses scheduled to be in place by late 2023.

The Luton Investment Framework

Bartlett Square is the latest exciting development in the continuing delivery of the Luton Investment Framework which is helping 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 Borough Council, LLAL is a key delivery partner.

LLAL’s commitment

We will continue to keep the community updated on the progress of the project, and will do everything we can to keep all disruption to affected parties and the community to a minimum.
