Leighton Buzzard and Linslade

Improving Leighton-Linslade town centre

We are committed to enhancing Leighton Buzzard’s distinct market town character and benefiting Leighton-Linslade’s social, economic and environmental sustainability.

As part of this we will be working towards enabling a major regeneration scheme in the heart of the town centre at Land South of the High Street.

This area of the town centre offers an opportunity for a comprehensive, new, mixed-use town centre development on a prime town centre site, immediately south of Leighton Buzzard High Street. It will create a sustainable extension to the town centre’s primary shopping area and a destination in its own right.

The 2.56ha development site comprises previously developed land and some active uses. The brief divides the site into three connected and complementary land use parcels, creating a well-connected retail circuit between High Street, Church Square and Duncombe Drive.

The purpose of the development brief is to promote the opportunity, to not only other landowners within the development brief area, but also potential occupiers who may be interested in the Leighton Buzzard location.

We are actively promoting the development opportunity at Land South of High Street. We're also currently engaging with local partners to better understand their aspirations and objectives, as we look beyond the current health emergency (COVID-19) and look forward to re-opening and reinvigorating Leighton Buzzard town centre.
