Bedfordshire has recently grown immensely in the eyes of investors and developers alike as the regeneration of the individual towns, and the County as a whole have become more prominent across the last five years. The East of England Development Agency wanted to create a vision which focuses on increasing jobs, the sustainability of growth and new and continuing business prospects. Specifically since 2013 the success of these plans can be seen, as unemployment in Bedfordshire has dropped by 2.8% whilst the number of enterprises has increased from 10,455 to 11,570.
With the University of Bedfordshire campuses located in Bedford, Luton and Milton Keynes and London Luton Airport, the County has drawn a lot of attention from investors and businesses alike. Luton, voted a Business Improvement District in 2015 and known as one of the top five most affordable commuter towns in England, has the potential to become a huge keystone location for Buy-to-Let investors and commuter homeowners alike. With housing prices increasing by 14% in the last year and by more than 30% since 2013, the value of Luton individually cannot be overlooked. In April 2016, a £1.5 billion inward investment programme was announced for Luton; with a 20 year plan to ensure strong and balanced growth of the area it outlined the main goal of an increase of 18,500 jobs.
With less than 30 minute direct transport links to St Pancras, there is little doubt as to why Luton is the site of two of Galliard’s biggest projects this summer. The Landmark, set just a 10 minute walk from the station, is a former office building offering studios, one and two bedroom apartments. With prices starting at £162,500 this development is in a prime location with amenities and facilities close by. Carlton House – presenting an entirely modern aspect of living with fully-equipped facilities and an luxurious finishes – will be a prime opportunity for a Buy-to-Let investor, or the homeowner commuter. For the ease of the client, Carlton House units will be finished with a complementary furniture package as well as the choice of an exclusive summer offer. With Luton town a 15 minute walk and the station a 10 minute drive away, this development will offer the utmost in high luxury and convenience living.
