Future Development Plans – Luton

Wednesday, 7th October 2020 0945hrs – 1130hrs

This online event will focus on driving development and regeneration across Luton and the surrounding region.

Infrastructure is playing a crucial role in the growth of Luton. The proposed Oxford Cambridge Arc is set to act as a catalyst for regeneration, whilst strong links to London and internationally through the airport means Luton is the perfect location for many developers and investors.

Luton Council is aiming to attract almost £2bn of investment into the area over the coming years and in this event we’ll hear from them and numerous private sector stakeholders who’re set to play a key role in that future development activity and achieving the Council’s strategic plans. They’ll share brief presentations revealing inside knowledge before the event opens up to questions from you, the audience.

Speakers for this event include:

Laura Church,
Corporate Director of Infrastructure and Place
Santhosh Gowda,
Graham Olver,
Chief Strategy Officer

The plans could create 5,600 new jobs as well as an additional 10,400 in the extended supply chain and bring nearly £1.3 billion into the economy of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire.
