To Luton Borough Council,
I would like to give my full support to both of the following planning applications Luton Town Football Club have submitted: Power Court-16/01400 & Newlands Park-16/01401
Having worked as a sports journalist since my teens, I have been fortunate enough to see the rise and, less fortunately, the fall of football clubs.
Kenilworth Road is a fantastic stadium and since the clubs 30 point deduction in 2008, and subsequent relegation out of the Football League, it has seen a fantastic group of people takeover and oversee a turnaround in the clubs fortunes.
However, for a club of Lutons size and for the benefit of the surrounding area, I personally believe it is time for the club to move across the town to Power Court.
I have seen the plans, as well as the facilities that Newlands Park would provide next to the M1, and it looks absolutely fantastic. It has taken into consideration not only the football club, but the surrounding area, and what could help trigger a rebirth of the town itself.
By this, I mean the creation of jobs that were maybe once provided by Vauxhall, as well as millions of pounds being pumped into the local economy. It is win-win. Sadly, Luton doesnt have the greatest reputation and plans like this would help elevate it back to its rightful place as one of the countrys better towns.
In addition to this, my beloved Hartlepool have had a torrid time against the Hatters since they returned to the Football League, so the sooner they are out of League Two and climbing up the divisions, the better.
