Projects to drive jobs and economic development, sustainably.
Current development projects
Direct Air-Rail Transit (DART)
We are well advanced in our work building the pioneering new Luton DART, a Direct Air-Rail Transit system to service London Luton Airport.
Scheduled to become operational during 2022, the DART is being developed to encourage passengers to travel to and from our airport via a more sustainable, fast, reliable 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 under four minutes.Find out more
New Century Park
New Century Park provides the location for an ambitious, well-designed, high-quality, high-yield and mixed-use development, incorporating business, commercial and light industrial units, aimed at bringing forward 3,200 jobs. Situated on the doorstep of the UK’s fifth largest airport with excellent transport links to London and the North, it will be a hub for job creation, as well as green technology and innovation.Find out more
We have 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. This could bring around 2,000 jobs to the site.Find out more
Our new skills, innovation and business hub is expected to create over 200 new jobs for Luton. Luton Rising acquired a four-storey, 33,000 sq ft building in Kimpton Road from Vauxhall early last year and refurbishment works will soon be under way, ready for opening in summer 2022. Importantly, sustainability is built-in to the building’s design.Find out more
