2020 Developments and RCP Parking are pleased to announce that a large section of land at Power Court in the town centre has now been re-purposed for use as a public car park.
The interim measure adds in the region of 500 car parking spaces centrally, with excellent access to the main train station, bus links and shopping areas. The new car park is ideally situated for people coming in to the town centre from the north via Hitchin Road, or from the M1 via the A1081, and will help to provide much-needed extra parking capacity in Luton.
The land at Power Court was acquired by the club’s development arm - 2020 Developments - in December 2016 and planning permission is currently being sought to build a new stadium for Luton Town FC on the site.
While the application process continues, the constructive use of the site as a parking facility will provide welcome additional income which will be reinvested into the applications for the stadium and the associated development at Newlands Park. The temporary use of the site as a car park will also cover the period post planning when the detailed design and contract tendering process takes place.
The use of the site means that for the first time in well over ten years, the blue placards surrounding the site at the North end of the site have been removed.
An introductory price of just 50p per hour for car parking is currently available on the site which is being managed by RCP Parking.
RCP are a longstanding member of the British Parking Association, and currently manage approximately 120 sites across the country. If you would be interested to find out more about contract parking or group rates, please contact RCP directly.
Members of the public wishing to park at Power Court should note that height restrictions are in place for access to the site, and any parking related issues should be addressed to RCP, rather than to Nathan Jones or the Football Club!
A section of the site measures approximately 2,500 sq ft is also available on a short term (in the run up to Christmas for example) or a 12 month let basis. This area would be idea for a pop-up kiosk or seasonal business such as a Christmas Tree lot, subject to planning. If you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity, please contact us.
