Luton 2020-2040: a placa to thrive

Luton 2020-2040

Following the success of the Luton Investment Framework (LIF) in attracting investment into the town, our shareholder Luton Council recognised the need to ensure that everyone in Luton could benefit from economic growth.

Luton 2020-2040 is a shared vision for the town: Luton will be a healthy, fair and sustainable town, where everyone can thrive and no-one has to live in poverty.

At the heart of the vision are also commitments to make Luton a town built on fairness and social justice, to give children and young people the best start in life by making Luton a child friendly town, and make Luton a carbon neutral town.

The vision document sets out how the council will work with residents and partners across Luton and the wider region to overcome the economic and health impacts of COVID-19, while beginning to deliver on the overall ambition for no-one in poverty by 2040.

LLAL is proud to be involved in such an exciting venture, and will work alongside Luton Council and other partners to deliver the vision’s objectives.

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. It's situated on the doorstep of the UK’s fifth largest airport, and within easy reach of excellent transport links to both London and the north.

Working in partnership with our shareholder Luton Council, LLAL has received outline planning permission for the proposals, with full planning consent granted for the construction of a new access road.

Direct Air-Rail Transit (DART)

LLAL is well advanced in its work building a pioneering new Direct Air-Rail Transit system (Luton DART) to service London Luton Airport.

Scheduled to become operational by 2022, the DART is being developed to encourage passengers to travel to and from our airport via a more sustainable, fast and energy-efficient means of transport.

The DART will be a fully-automated, cable-hauled system, approximately 2.1km in length, and will transport passengers between Luton Airport Parkway station and the terminal in well under four minutes.

You can see about this scheme on the DART website.

Bartlett Square

Working in partnership with our shareholder Luton Borough Council, LLAL 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.
