Former Luton Town captain and Littlewoods Cup winner - 1988
Luton Town Football Club gave me one of the finest memories of my football career when I captained the team to Littlewoods Cup Final victory at Wembley in 1988, so it's only right that I write in support of their planning application for a new stadium.
As much as I love Kenilworth Road and can reminisce fondly about the great occasions we had there in my five years at the club, the Town need a new ground to be able to progress.
I'd heard great things about the proposals for Power Court and the mixed-use development at Newlands Park, and when I looked at the planning documents myself online I was blown away.
I live in Brighton, a club I also played for, so have seen first-hand what a boost a new stadium can provide for a town, as well as the football club. Both developments will bring much-needed trade and jobs to Luton, changing the way people view the area from outside.
The location of Power Court will be ideal for me and many other exiled Luton fans. I'll be able to jump on the Thameslink in Sussex and be inside the stadium within a couple of minutes of getting off the train in Luton. With restaurants, bars and entertainment next t it, I'll probably make an evening of my visit and still be able to get back home without needing to drive.
The Newlands Park development by junction ten of the M1 will also bring some real variety to the shopping and leisure options on offer to local people and visitors to the area.
This is a great chance for Luton Borough Council to do something really positive for the town and a wonderful football club. Please approve both applications and ensure it happens.
Mr Steve Foster
