High Town masterplan

Sub heading

High Town masterplan
The Luton Local Plan identifies High Town as one of eight strategic allocations where the bulk of investment and development is likely to be concentrated over the next 15 years.

​The vision for the area is succinctly set out in the local plan policy which sets out to...

"create a sustainable vibrant, historic neighbourhood destination delivered through residential-led mixed use development whilst protecting the historical environment and assets including:

  • small scale offices / workshops
  • live work units
  • increased retail provision

This which will enhance the area including increased footfall, better pedestrian access and permeability, more public open space and an enhanced natural environment."

The local plan anticipates that High Town has the potential to deliver the highest concentration of new housing in the town. These will build on the strengths of the area including:

  • the historic conservation area concentrated on High Town Road
  • its strategic location adjacent to Luton's main line connection to London and proximity to the town centre
The High Town masterplan sets out a comprehensive approach to delivering investment and regeneration to this important and historic part of the town. There has been extensive consultation with the local community in putting the masterplan together, including a final period of consultation during April and May 2016.
We have now reviewed all the comments made during the consultation and on 19 September the masterplan was adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD). At the same time the East Village design codes were retained as SPD and the earlier 2007 High Town SPD was revoked.
The final version of the High Town masterplan will be published in due course but, until this is available, the adopted SPD comprises High Town masterplan together with the schedule of changes agreed by Executive. Copies of these documents together with the East Village design codes can be downloaded below.
