    This significant development opportunity is being delivered by Luton Borough Council in partnership with London Luton Airport Limited, and comprises three sites surrounding or connected to London Luton Airport: New Century Park, Airport Business Park and Bartlett Square.

    Enterprise Zones provide a range of benefits to businesses.

    The Luton Investment Framework is an ambitious and visionary 20-year programme, spearheaded by Luton Borough Council, aimed at creating 18,500 new jobs in Luton and transforming the town’s future.

    LLAL is proud to be involved in such an exciting venture, and will work alongside Luton Borough Council and other partners to deliver the framework’s objectives. 


London Luton Airport Limited (LLAL)

  • LLAL is delighted to have recently announced its London Luton Airport Vision for Sustainable Growth 2020-50. Please visit the vision 2050 page for more details.

    Luton offers a wide and expanding range of destinations for both the leisure and business traveller, through a number of airline operators including easyJet, Wizz Air, Ryanair and Tui.

    It is also the UK’s leading airport for business aviation.

  • New Century Park provides the location for an ambitious, well-designed, high-quality, high-yield mixed-use development, incorporating business, commercial and light industrial units in a rural fringe setting, on the doorstep of the UK’s fifth largest airport, and within easy reach of excellent transport links to both London and the North. 


    Proposals also include the construction of a new access road.

  • LLAL is planning to build a new Direct Air to Rail Transit system (Luton DART) to service London Luton Airport.

    The DART is being developed to encourage passengers to travel to and from the airport via a more sustainable and efficient means of transport.

    The DART will be a fully automated and driverless system, approximately 2.1km in length, and will transport passengers between Luton Airport Parkway station and the terminal.

    Planning permission has been received from Luton Borough Council and Central Bedfordshire Council. The DART system is scheduled to become operational by 2021.

  • London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL), working in partnership with its shareholder Luton Borough Council, has announced it is to submit a planning application 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.


Sounds exciting! So what's in it for me?

As well as the opportunity to work on these world class development projects, we also have a fantastic range of staff benefits on offer... 


  • ... but these are our favourites!


  • Flexible and Agile Working Arrangements

    We know our flexible and agile working policies are a massive hit with team Luton, so we're confident you'll love them too! Take control of your own day, and chose the hours you want to work between 7:30am - 7:30pm. As long as you do 37 hours a week, we don't mind when! And if working from home now and then is good for you, it's good for us too.

  • Family Friendly Policies

    We understand that family always comes first, so we've developed a range of family friendly policies to help make life a bit easier. We'll support you all the way, from flexible working patterns to parental leave. And if starting or growing your own family is on the cards, then there's generous maternity, paternity and adoption polices for that too!

  • Parking

    You may already know that parking in the centre of town can be costly (if you manage to get a space at all). So for some of our roles, as a one off perk, we've sorted it for you. You'll have special access to designated parking spaces in the town centre, free of charge!

  • Market Supplement

    Again, as another perk, for some of our Planning roles, we're offering you a market supplement rate in addition to your yearly salary of up to £4,000, depending on the role! Take a look at the job adverts at the bottom of this page for more information. 


We're also great at career development - see how Laura went from being our Trainee Planner to our Corporate Director!


  • Case study

    I joined Luton Council back in 1988 as a trainee planner, and with the support of those around me I was able to get a Planning postgraduate qualification. My focus in this team was on the environment, conservation, heritage, and the town centre. Having progressed to a principal planning officer, I was then seconded to the Economic Development team to work on regeneration. So there’s always been fantastic encouragement to move around the council and learn new things.

    Following my secondment, I took on a business development role in the new Regeneration Service, working with business and EU funding. After a brilliant, busy time as the Interim Head of Regeneration and then Head of Business and Consumer Services, l became the Interim Corporate Director - which turned into a permanent role.

    It’s fair to say that I’ve enjoyed some great opportunities to build and progress my career here. As a borough without boundaries, Luton’s a remarkable place to grow your skills and experience like never before.
