Luton Learning and Community Partnership
Luton Learning and Community Partnership (LLCP) is an independent company, formed in May 2009 following a Building Schools for the Future procurement. It is jointly owned by Luton Borough Council, Amber Infrastructure Fund and Wates.
LLCP integrates a supply chain of construction, facilities and logistics companies and brings expertise and flexibility to the environments in which they work to ensure that our future generations reach their full potential.
Since its formation, LLCP has delivered over £200 million worth of community projects including schools, housing, community centres, and leisure facilities.
In addition, LLCP and Luton Borough Council have formed New Homes for Luton, a Joint Venture with Catalyst Housing Group and Wates Living Space to develop brownfield and uneconomic sites to deliver 450 new homes.
LLCP continues to work alongside Luton Borough Council in the on-going regeneration of the community.
