PLANNING APPLICATIONS 16/01400/OUTEIA AT POWER COURT AND 16/01401/OUTEIA AT LAND ADJACENT TO JUNCTION 10 AND 10A M1

I may not be a Lutonian by birth but I consider it my home since I've played, coached, managed and, now scouted, for the Football Club on and off for over thirty years I have become more than fond of the town, its people and its wonderful community spirit. In fact the Town has given me the proudest moment of my career representing the town at Wembley.

I have looked at the planning documents on the Council's website and want to offer my undivided support for both of the plans. The proposals look absolutely tremendous and I am thrilled that there are people wanting to invest in our town and community. I believe both schemes are much needed for the following reasons:
o The proposals will provide a fantastic new football stadium for Luton Town Football Club, something which is long overdue and very dear to my and other people's hearts. Putting the stadium in the town centre is a great idea as it will bring the town together and help a real sense of community.
o The land at Power Court has been blot on the town for too long and the proposals will be a real boost to the town centre. The stadium, the music venue, the new homes, cafes and bars, will bring people into the town centre and make it come alive again.
o The proposals at Junction 10 are also very exciting. I will be delighted to be able to shop in Luton – something I haven't done for a very long time. I really think that with this scheme and the existing shops in the town centre, there won't be a need to shop anywhere else. That has to be good for Luton.
o The town centre is great for day-to-day things, but it doesn't compete with Watford or Milton Keynes. These schemes will provide a new offer and allow people to spend their money in Luton. This is surely a good thing.
o These developments will change perceptions of the town and the team. Let's make sure both get promoted again and again!

I really hope that the Council grabs this opportunity to change Luton for the better and approves both of these applications.

Yours sincerely
Mick
