Another large derelict site in Dunstable has planning submitted for redevelopment into housing and retail.

Again we are seeing further investment in Dunstable and the development of this eyesore on the Luton Road will be welcome by many.

An outline planning application has been submitted for the development of up to 100 dwellings and a small retail site on the former Ecomold site on Luton Road opposite the B&M and Carpetright retail park.

Information submitted with the application shows that there have been many enquiries for the site including use as a Data Centre, but these never materialised.

With the current demand on housing, both sales and rental, and the announcement that companies such as Amazon will be opening a distribution centre here soon the development of sites such as these should be welcomed.

This is the main approach from Luton into Dunstable and with the new Market Cross pub, the impressive circular Priory View development by the Council on Church St and hopefully the redevelopment of this derelict site the impression given as you approach Dunstable will be of a growing and improving town.
