Green Horizons Park is the new name for our proposed commercial development on a previously undelivered key employment site to the north-east of London Luton Airport.
Previously known as New Century Park, Luton Rising holds outline planning permission for a scheme aimed at bringing forward 3,200 new jobs.
The new name reflects our ambitions for this site to enable Luton to become a leader in developing sustainability industries, research and finance, and we are working to explore emerging new opportunities with strategic partners.
New jobs, improved public open space
Green Horizons Park is part of the London Luton Airport Enterprise Zone, supported by SEMLEP, which in total will deliver up to 7,200 new jobs and inward investment to support economic growth across the sub-region.
The proposed development will include improved facilities in the northern section of Wigmore Valley Park, to include:
• a new play area
• refurbished Wigmore Pavilion
• a new, larger area of replacement public open space
Gaining access: a new road
Plans for commercial development at Green Horizons Park have been discussed for more than 20 years but not delivered by the previous landowners due to the difficulty of providing access.
The new access road which will unlock development at Green Horizons Park will be delivered as part of the airport expansion plans. This will run from a new roundabout on the A1081, and around the western, northern and eastern perimeters of London Luton Airport.
Planning permission for Green Horizons Park was granted in 2021.
Luton Rising’s commitment
Luton Rising is committed to improving the public open space available in the area to local residents, and to ensuring that there is the least possible disruption to airport operations, businesses and local residents as this key development is brought forward.
