Further to the successful determination of our Power Court planning application by Luton Borough Council on Wednesday evening, 2020 Developments and Luton Town Football Club wish to inform supporters and all other interested parties that we have today written to the Council to request a short deferral of the committee date for our Newlands Park planning application.

Currently scheduled for 30th January, we have taken the decision, after due consideration of our available resource in regards executive time and involvement of board members that our interests, both on and off the pitch, are best served by delaying the Newlands committee date in the short term.

We look to receive confirmation of a new date imminently from the Council once available diaries and resources at the Town Hall have been considered.

We also wish once again to place on record our appreciation for all the time and effort employed by everyone in Luton in dealing with our two applications thus far.

Wednesday was a momentous day in the history of both our club and the whole town. The unanimous support given by members of the planning committee for our plans confirms our longstanding belief that our vision for Power Court represents a once in a generation opportunity for the entire community to move forward.

We have also been very clear on the importance of Newlands Park and its own integral role within our plans, and we look forward to making this case to Council members in the very near future.
