IN BRIEF: Scale of development in Luton could threat green belt

The scale of development needed in Luton could threaten the borough's green belt unless it is protected, the council has warned. The second draft of its local plan provides for 1,315 homes from 2003 to 2011, with development focused on brownfield sites. Around 800 affordable homes will be sought during the period. Luton will aim to ensure 50 per cent affordable homes on schemes of 15 properties or more, at a density of 40 per hectare. Luton Local Plan 2001-11 Second Deposit Draft is available from Luton Borough Council (tel) 01582 547096.
