Dear Sirs,

Planning Application Details: Power Court 16/01400 and Newlands Park 16/01401

I am writing in support of Luton Town’s two applications for a new stadium at Power Court and the associated development just off the M1 at Junction 10.

In my job, working for sports television, I am lucky enough to visit football stadiums up and down the country and I have some real affection for Kenilworth Road – one of the last remaining ‘old fashioned’ grounds left in England. It does have real character and I can remember some outstanding games being played there, but that character does mask the need for the club to upgrade its facilities and provide an arena fit for the 21st century.

The plans for the stadium, particularly the iconic floodlight halo look fantastic and I hope to be able to be part of a broadcast from the new stadium once it has opened – hopefully with Luton in the Championship or beyond by that time. I really do feel the design is very special – it gives the ground its own special image, one that everyone will know is Luton rather than some of the more generic stadia that have popped up in recent years and I love the fact that it will be in the town centre, where a club should be, in amongst its fans and local businesses who must surely benefit from having 15-20,000 people around every game.

I am a resident of St Albans and would welcome an alternative option when I need to visit a quality retail venue – it will be much more convenient than a trip up or down the M1 into London, Brent Cross or, dare I say, Milton Keynes. And again, the design features there will surely provide an impressive entrance into the town of Luton for anyone coming off the motorway at the airport junction. It seems obvious even to non-specialist like me that this business, leisure and retail park will be magnificent for the entire region.

Luton Town Football Club, after all it has endured in the last 10 years or so, truly deserves the opportunity to thrive again and with this proposed new stadium surely it will do just that. Whenever I speak to Luton fans this is all they talk about – a new start in a new stadium built in the town centre where access is good and where they can enjoy all the facilities the town has to offer both before and after a game.

Surely it is too good an opportunity to miss.
