I feel sure that there will be a lot more to come on this topic in the near future; I shall provide a couple of links now for those who wish to do some reading.
During 2012 a company called Templeview Developments Limited (which is controlled by Mr S Doyle, who was also a key individual in forumlating the original 'Bushwood' proposals) submitted an application to Luton Borough Council to erect a significant number of flats/maisonettes plus a small number of houses on the strip of Land between Newlands Road and the M1 motorway. The application was refused by Luton Borough
Council, a decision which was unsuccessfully fought at appeal by the
applicant. The full 2013 appeal decision can be found here .
Sadly, it would seem that this is not the end of the story and a revised application has now been submitted. Details are available via the planning portal on the Luton Borogh Council website and searching reference 14/00015/OUT.
