Tackling social gathering

Luton BID have been working in partnership with Bedfordshire Police, Luton Borough Council and businesses to reduce the amount of social gathering in our town centre and assist with social distancing.

In order to do this pagodas/ multiple bench areas have been cordoned off. In addition markings have been placed on the pavement to encourage responsible queuing outside banks on George Street.
Free car parking in Luton town centre

Parking is now free on Luton town centre roads, council-owned car parks and The Mall's multi-storey car park.

This is to assist keyworkers to get to their places of work with greater ease and to ensure hassle-free parking for volunteers helping people who are self isolating and in need of assistance.

Time limits will continue to be in place for on-street parking bays and the council has asked drivers to respect these.

Luton's The Mall has also announced it will temporarily adopt free parking at its multi-storey car park to help people through the coronavirus crisis.
