Due to its strategic location, Luton is under immense development pressure. Expansion of the town is unavoidable. Following discussions with the various local authorities, The Crown Estate appointed Carter Jonas to undertake a study to identify suitable locations within their land holdings.

The study resulted in three key sites being examined for their development potential. Working with in-house planning and viability teams, the Carter Jonas Master Planning team undertook capacity assessments and prepared development strategies for each of the sites.

Combined, the development strategy for the expansion of Luton identifies up to 138 hectares of developable land, with the ability to provide some 1,800 dwellings, as well as new schools, local centres, open space and a range of other community facilities.
