Key facts

Newlands Park, Luton

PBA continues to provide support to Luton 2020 Developments for the prestigious Newlands Park development.

The 40-acre site at junction 10 of the M1 is one of the most visible and prominent development sites in the UK, and was acquired by Luton2020 Developments in 2015. The aspirational Newlands Park development proposal offers the opportunity to create an iconic gateway to Luton, enhancing perceptions, bringing in new business, complementing the town centre and creating over 4,000 new jobs. The core elements of the plan include up to 42,000 m² of high-spec offices, up to 37,000 m² of retail trading space –‘anchored’ by a quality department store to complement and enhance existing retail in Luton– plus up to 16,000 m² of leisure floor space and a 350-bed hotel.

PBA has provided technical services including transport, utilities, geotechnical, ecology, flood risk, and drainage and continues to support the club in the development of this exciting mixed-use scheme which will ultimately facilitate the development of a new stadium for Luton Town Football Club in the town centre.
