Transforming Marsh Farm

The Marsh Farm regeneration project is a three-year programme to rejuvenate the estate across three phases and renovate Luton High Rise to increase energy sufficiency and safety.

ENGIE has been appointed by Luton Borough Council to transform Marsh Farm - an integral step into helping the council’s wider plan for major town-wide transformations. We’re regenerating the Marsh Farm estate by constructing new homes and refurbishing some of the tower blocks.

The first area of the project is the regeneration, where we are currently working on the third phase of a three phased project. Phase one and two are now complete, meaning 24 units have been built along with retail space. We are currently working on phase 3 which is construction of 94 new homes.

Supporting this significant project, is the renovating of the Luton High Rise, which seeks to integrate state of the art technology into the homes of Penhill and Leabank. This includes a combination of internal and external works to improve energy efficiency within the two blocks.

A link to the project overview is on the righthand side which provides highlights of the three phases and more information about ENGIE.

    With work already underway on the £25m regeneration of Marsh Farm, Luton Borough Council is inviting residents to come up with the names for some of the scheme’s key developments.

    Local residents and businesses have helped shape the Marsh Farm redevelopment through a project steering group. In order to build on this and ensure a lasting legacy in the area, the Council and steering group is asking locals to come up with names for the new shopping centre, main road leading up to the flats (currently called Vadis Close) and the three individual blocks of flats
    Mo Harkin, Service Director for Housing, said: “This central area redevelopment is set to make a real positive difference to Marsh Farm, with high quality homes and shops bringing long-term social and economic benefits for local people. But just as importantly we want to ensure that residents help shape the identity of the whole area going forward.
    “We hope the competition sparks people’s imagination and creativity by coming up with engaging and interesting names that will stand the test of time. Whether they reflect local history, or promote a new identity for the central area moving forward, the most important thing is that they are names that locals can identify with.”
    The competition closes on Monday 27th June 2016. The local steering group will come up with a short list which will need to be verified by the Council to ensure it meets statutory requirements for street names. Final selection of approved names will then revert back to the steering group.
