The Bedfordshire and Luton Extensive Urban Survey was part of a national programme of work coordinated by English Heritage. The project aims to re-evaluate the urban archaeological resource and to provide comprehensive and consistent base-line information against which research, regeneration and land use planning objectives may be set. The survey of the historic towns of Bedfordshire and Luton was funded by English Heritage. The Heritage and Environment Section of Bedfordshire County Council commissioned Albion Archaeology on behalf of the County Council and Luton Borough Council to undertake assessments of the 12 historic towns in the county. The project was managed by the County Archaeological Officer. Research and preparation of the assessments took place between 2001 and 2003, with a final revision and editing in early 2005.

The project was carried out on behalf of Bedfordshire County Council and Luton Borough Council who act as archaeological advisors on planning matters and are responsible for maintaining the County Historic Environment Record and the Borough Historic Environment Records respectively.
