What’s Going on?


Where will it be built?

  • The site is located at the junction of Chiltern Green Road and the B653 set between the roads, the Thameslink mainline and the Lea Valley cycle path.
  • The site is broadly triangular in shape and approx. 9 hectares in size.
  • The site is currently agricultural land and forms an important band of uncultivated land running along the valley floor from the edge of Luton.
  • The valley also contains the River Lea a chalk stream in part running from the Chiltern hills.
