After the Pre-Submission Luton Local Plan (2011-2031) dated October 2015 was sent to a Planning Inspector for approval during an Examination in Public. Luton Borough Council changed their Local Plan by choosing to relocate a Football Stadium for Luton Town Football Club from M1 junction 10a adjacent to Newlands Road, to Power Court, a brownfield site, adjacent to St. Mary’s Church Luton.
Since that time almost 4 years have elapsed and a legitimate question of public interest still remains unanswered.
Who has benefited from Luton Borough Council’s football stadium relocation choice?
Is the beneficiary:
- Luton Borough Council?
- 2020 Developments Limited, the owners of the Power Court site and the M1 J10a Newlands Road site?
- Luton Town Football Club who are also owned by 2020 Developments Limited?
Whoever of 1), 2) or 3), is the beneficiary, was the benefit a financial benefit?
