Planning application submitted for new employment space in Leighton Buzzard

February 2022

Litton Property Group and AW Group have submitted a joint planning application to Central Bedfordshire Council for a 30,000 sq.ft. employment scheme in Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.

The application is for two commercial employment units adjoining the Greenfields local centre.

The 3.5 acre site is presently an undeveloped vacant commercial plot left following the successful development of 2500 new homes at Southern Leighton Buzzard Urban Extension. The Southern Leighton Buzzard Urban Extension was led, master planned and promoted by AW Group on behalf of landowners including AW Group and The Church Commissioners.

The scheme is aiming to be highly energy efficient and as close to zero carbon as possible and will include 5 car charging points.

It is designed to provide a number of ‘hybrid’ high quality, flexible employment units with mezzanine floors. The scheme is targeted at high quality local businesses. Litton & AW Group believe there is a structural shortage of this type of accommodation within the local market.

Litton and AW Group have formed a new JV to take the project through to construction and the plan is to then retain the project with Litton providing development and property management expertise. They are being advised by consultants Arrow Planning and the letting agents are Brown & Lee Surveyors, Tel: 01908 508100.
