We Asked, You Said, We Did

See what we've consulted on.

We asked

The council consulted with residents, businesses, voluntary and community sector organisations, public sector organisations, arts and culture stakeholders, young people and Luton Council employees to seek views on the initial Luton 2040 vision.

 

You said

Feedback showed there was significant support for the vision, agreeing it set the right ambition for the town and significant agreement with each of the strategic priorities.

A number of important points were raised for strengthening the vision and valuable suggestions for improving each of the strategic priorities and target outcomes in the vision.

The majority of those who responded to the survey understood how they could play their part in delivering the Luton 2040 vision and how they could work in partnership to do so.

We did

As a result of the feedback, changes were made to the vision document including:

  • additional strengths of the town
  • changes to the vision statement
  • changes to the strategic priorities
  • changes to target outcomes
  • additional information for inclusion in the vision document

A consultation report was produced providing details of feedback received and proposed changes to the document.

The updated Luton 2020 - 2040 vision was approved by the council’s Executive and launched in October 2020.

 

We asked

We asked for comments on whether the boundary of the Plaiters' Lea: The Hat District Conservation Area should be extended.

You said

We received feedback for and against the boundary change.

We did

The feedback was considered in detail and considerations were included in the report to the Council's Executive.  The Executive resolved to agree the boundary change as outlined in the consultation.

We asked

The council consulted the public on proposals for the Vauxhall Way improvements. Vauxhall Way, Hitchin Road and Stopsley is the most well developed scheme and people had the opportunity to comment on the latest design to manage congestion. 

You said

Feedback from the public consultation demonstrated an agreement with the need to improve safety, traffic flow, pedestrian and cycling facilities. However, it was also noted that there are concerns that a signalised junction would make traffic flow worse and increase pollution. Congestion experienced on Stockingstone Road was also highlighted as an issue, as well as turning issues in and out of Birchen Grove. 

We did

In order to demonstrate how Vauxhall Way will operate with the anticipated future growth comparing a scenario where we do not convert the roundabout into a signalised junction, Luton Council has developed movie clips which can be viewed by visiting  www.luton.gov.uk and searching 'Major Road Improvements' in the search bar. 

The council will also be investigating solutions to the Stockingstone Road congestion issues as part of the 2020/2021 programme.

Regarding the turning issues at the Birchen Grove junction the council will be investigating a solution with the aim to be implemented before the end of this scheme.
