Dear Development Control,

As a Bedfordshire resident and a former player I politely request that you give your approval to the plans registered to you by Luton Town 2020.

The Football Club gave me one of my proudest football memories when I scored at Wembley in our Littlewoods Cup Final victory over Arsenal in 1988. It seemed like most of Luton attended that day.

After two spells playing for The Hatters and after coaching there at the end of my playing career, I'm always made to feel welcome when I go back now, as I do almost every week in a media role. It pains me to say it but the club cannot survive at Kenilworth Road any longer. It has been falling apart at the seams for a long time, the access is so tight and restrictive arriving and leaving can be a nightmare and for the club to progress and return to the levels we were at in the past, they need to be able to expand into other areas.

Power Court, due to its closeness to train and bus stations as well as more walkers, will be a huge improvement. I've not seen many new-build stadiums look as impressive as the illustrated pictures show. The floodlight system will be very impressive once built and will become a landmark in Luton – when was the last time we had one of those? In fact when was the last time Luton had a decent live concert hall for bands?

The shops, cinema, bars, restaurants and hotel at Newlands Road are essential for clubs to make more money these days to keep it alive, but that will also bring new people and business to the area. I'm just as impressed with the visual imagery of the retail park as I am the stadium. It looks totally unique and puts Luton on the map as a modern city.

I'd love to see a club and town close to my heart and a community with some great people in it given the chance to grow again. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Yours faithfully,

Brian Stein
