Broadcaster, Radio Personality and Luton Town supporter.

Dear Sir / Madam

I grew up in Luton and am a massive Luton Town fan. I am a sports presenter for BBC Sport, Absolute Radio, Football on Five and Premier League Productions and regularly speak passionately not only about my football club, but also about my hometown.

I now live in Balham in south London, but there are "Hatters" fans everywhere, including in the borough (Wandsworth) I live in and across the numerous media organisations I work at. There is even a Luton Town Supprters Club based at the BBC's Media City in Salford!

What is apparent when I speak to all of these people and people across the world of football is that Luton Town FC and Luton itself had fallen on bad times, but the club - and the town - are on the up. There are only positives to take from the position the club now finds itself in following promotion to League Two, a new manager, infrastructure and a dynamic and aspirational board. Everyone involved in Luton Town wants to club to prosper and that in turn will help the town prosper.

The club have been talking about a new stadium since my Grandad was a fan 60 years ago. Before he passed away last year, he read about the new plans with excitement and said he hoped this time it would actually become a reality. He, and thousands of other lifelong fans would love to see this great club back where it belongs, in the top tier of English football, and a new stadium and facilities are essential to help that happen.

Luton itself has had a "bad rep" for years, featuring in ridiculous polls and gaining a reputation it doesn't really deserve. By bringing visitors from other clubs and new businesses to the centre of a regenerated town, the reputation of Luton can only be enhanced. With excellent transport links and potential, Luton should be a hotspot, not somewhere to be avoided and the best way to generate interest and change people's perceptions is to give them the opportunity to see if for themselves. The area Kenilworth Road is currently in unfortunately is so run down it doesn't give visitors an overall view of Luton at all. Power Court and Newlands Park would give new businesses, the media and visiting supporters a completely different perception of the town and its reputation can only grow.

In case you hadn't guessed from my email, I wholly support the applications for Power Court and Newlands Park! I would love to see Luton get back to its best and this is the most exciting and sustainable potential development we've seen for years.

Kind regards

Faye Carruthers
