Find out how we are taking your views about the Power Court/Newlands Park plans forward and see what's in the pipeline for Christmas in Luton town centre ...
Luton BID supports Power Court and Newlands Park plans

We would like to thank those businesses who submitted comments to Luton BID in relation to the  planning applications by Luton Town Football Club for two new developments at Power Court and  Newlands Park (the site off Junction 10, M1). 

The BID has submitted its comments to support the proposals which we believe have the potential to  raise the standards in the town and help improve the overall perception of the town centre and have  raised a number of issues to be addressed.

The issues raised include: 

  • Impact on economic growth 
  • Continuity of parking charges
  • Lack of office space on Power Court
  • Parking provision at Power Court
  • Impact of traffic and crowds
