LLAL’s development projects

New Century Park

New Century Park provides the location for an ambitious, well-designed, high-quality, high-yield mixed-use development, incorporating business, commercial and light industrial units in a rural fringe setting, on the doorstep of the UK’s fifth largest airport, and within easy reach of excellent transport links to both London and the North.
Proposals include the construction of a new access road.

Direct Air-Rail Transit (DART)

LLAL has started work building a new Direct Air-Rail Transit system (Luton DART) to service London Luton Airport.

The DART is being developed to encourage passengers to travel to and from the airport via a more sustainable and efficient means of transport.

The DART will be a fully automated and driverless system, approximately 2.1km in length, and will transport passengers between Luton Airport Parkway station and the terminal.

Planning permission has been received from Luton Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council. The DART system is scheduled to become operational by 2021.

Bartlett Square

London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL), working in partnership with its shareholder Luton Borough Council, has submitted a planning application 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.
