It’s day four and we are almost half way through the public consultation roadshow. The footfall has been impressive so far and 2020 Developments team have presented their planning applications for Power Court and Newlands Park to the public.
We have been sharing the answers to the most frequently asked questions put to the 2020 Developments team. Here are the next three:
4, Are the proposals viable?
Yes, with professional and careful business planning. We have spent some considerable time working with leading industry advisers to ensure our plans are both deliverable and viable.
5, Would the planning applications be linked or separate?
The planning applications will be separate in the sense that they will be two individual applications. However, they will likely be tied together in the detailed legal conditions that would accompany them. Additionally, there are numerous challenges with the Power Court site which need to be resolved to allow it to be developed for anything at all and our Newlands Park scheme would facilitate this through financial contribution. Without Newlands Park, the Power Court development is simply not affordable.
6, How will the proposals benefit local business?
Taken together the Power Court and Newlands Park proposals will work to dramatically enhance the reputation and standing of the town on both a national and international scale. In addition to the direct benefits of thousands of new, high quality jobs and amenities for the town we believe this improvement in perception for the town as a whole will prove to be a great catalyst for the wider renaissance of Luton over the coming decades.
