Find out about the next streets in line for deep cleaning, get involved in our 'Tidy Days' and sign up for our next Luton BID Linked networking event...
Street deep cleaning programme continues
Our monthly street cleaning programme is making a real difference by improving the accessibility and appeal of Luton town centre hot spots.
The programme focuses on streets and areas most in need of cleaning. So far six streets have been targeted and Collingdon Street and Liverpool Road are next in line on 28th October.
The clean will take place overnight so the streets will be open as usual in the day.
We have another 'Tidy Day' coming up
In addition to the deep cleaning programme, we are very pleased with the success of our 'Tidy Days' where volunteers from town centre businesses take part in tidying up the town centre.
The next Tidy Day will be on Friday 25th November, 8am - 10am and will concentrate on the area around St George's Square and George Street ready for the Christmas light switch-on the following day.

Footfall monitor shows numbers are up
Our special footfall cameras are positioned in Park Street, Manchester Street, Bute Street and George Street in the town centre to measure visitor numbers.
Footfall numbers across town centres in the UK are generally down, with most places reporting a reduction. However Luton town centre is still performing strongly against the 2015 figures, and the number of people coming into the town centre is up by 2.3%.
Luton BID will continue efforts to ensure Luton town centre provides a great experience for visitors and shoppers.
