After waiting for what seems like an eternity, Luton Borough Council have approved plans for the Luton Town FC to build a new 17,500 capacity stadium at the Power Court site in Luton. The Hatters have played at their Kenilworth Road Ground since 1905, but local restrictions have meant that the Club would find it very difficult to redevelop Kenilworth Road and have decided instead to move the Club to a new location.
The Planned New Stadium
The Power Court location is popular with supporters as it remains within Luton and is around one mile away from Kenilworth Road (not far from the railway station). The new stadium has an interesting design as shown above (courtesy of the Luton Town Developments website, where more information and images can be found).
Although there is still a long way to go in terms of the stadium actually materialising both in terms of finance and dealing with the challenges of the site itself (a power station was previously onsite). The Club have taken a big step forward and if everything goes to plan, then they could be kicking off in their new home in a few years time.
