0 Luton Town files stadium planning application

LutonTownFCLeague Two football club Luton Town has filed a planning application as its ambitious bid to build a new stadium complex gathers pace.

The application includes plans for a 17,500-capacity stadium in the Power Court part of the town, and a mixed-use development - which is expected to fund the stadium - to be built in Newlands Park.

The football club recently carried out an exhibition and a public consultation, with 90 per cent of the 4,000 visitors in favour of the scheme - which would see the club move from its current Kenilworth Road ground.

In April, Luton Town chief executive Gary Sweet said the plans would "help enormously to invigorate our town and region", adding: "Not only will this help create a more attractive place to live, work and play but the economic impact will be significant for both our town and club."

If Luton Borough Council accepts the planning application the stadium is expected to be ready before the 2020/21 season.
