Rob Stringer

Chairman and CEO of Columbia Records

Dear Sir/Madam,

I am writing to you as an impassioned fan of Luton Town FC for over 40 years in support of the planning applications for Power Court and Newlands Park.
In recent years I have been a director of the club and I am currently a Vice President so I have seen at first hand the difficulties the club has faced in building a stable future in its current home. Much as we all have many happy memories at Kenilworth Road we have obviously missed out on the economic and social transformation of modern football through the limitations of our stadium. Now for the first time in my relationship with the club we have a plan that will transform the club and in turn the town itself.

I have read through much of the paperwork regarding the club's application and I am impressed with the intelligent and thorough strategic set of criteria that covered every detail of the proposed new development. Hopefully my credentials in business have allowed me to view this process objectively and whilst we are all fans who want to see our club play in a beautiful new stadium I believe that the whole plan benefits the town and its residents whether they like football or not. The facilities built by the club can be used by a wide cross section of the towns population not just on match days and the jobs the development will provide can only spark the local economy.

Luton has a perhaps an unfair reputation for being a non progressive town and surely this development would help radically alter this perception. Speaking to a prominent music artist and businessman in Leicester there is no question that their recent success has not only helped transform the football club and its fans but the city itself. We could have the same situation in Luton in years to come but not in our current home at Kenilworth Road.

Finally I can assure you from personal experience that the current board of directors and executives are the best group I have encountered in my wider involvement at the club and they will be diligent and considerate partners with you in this exciting new development!

Yours Sincerely,

Rob Stringer

Chairman and CEO of Columbia Records
