Former Luton Town winger, and Littlewoods Cup winner

Dear Sir/Madam,

As a proud Lutonian and a Ludlow Avenue resident I write to demonstrate my support for the planning applications applied for by Luton Town for a new stadium at Power Court and an office and retail development at Newlands Park by Junction 10 of the M1.

I lived every local schoolboy's dream in pulling on the Town shirt and winning a cup final at Wembley and I've recently returned to coach youngsters on the club's football education programme on a voluntary basis.

These local lads need not only a sparkling new stadium to aim for, but somewhere they can go to in their leisure time with friends without having to travel out of town. It's been sad to see significant areas of the town centre lay derelict in recent years and I'm delighted to see some attractive development in and around town – the transport gateway and cultural quarter is a case in point. Nothing however surpasses the architecture and ambitious designs for Power Court that will bring this particular area of town back to life and will uplift every other area of the town centre. The location is perfect for a vibrant football club due to the aforementioned transport gateway and opening up the River Lea will make this area a place of beauty for all to see.

I've reviewed the plans for Newlands Park too and this project will be a major attraction for people to come to Luton to work and spend their hard earned wages. Major companies will be attracted to the area and the annual financial boost to the local economy with largescale new employment will be exactly what will put my hometown back on the map. My family are local resident to this site and I'm more than happy to have this destination within walking distance.

The club I'm so proud to have represented in its finest moment is a wonderful institution which takes its community responsibility very seriously. 2020 will be excellent stakeholders in our town with these developments. This is your chance to write a new chapter in the history of our town. Please don't pass up the opportunity to bring a sense of pride back and give these plans your approval.

Yours faithfully,

Mr Kingsley Black
