As a community #saveourtown we’re working to give a voice to local people who want a bright new future for Luton and we have amassed support from a wide cross-section of our community and beyond – from all across the globe, in fact.
We call them all Lutonians, because they have the town in their hearts. You don’t have to be born in Luton to love it.
Thousands of you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube; have signed up to our newsletter; visit this website and attend our community engagement events. Every one of you is an example of what makes Luton great.
We’ve also had prominent personalities and businesses support us and here you can find out who is fully onboard with our campaign.
If you run or own a business, organisation or group and want to pledge your support for an improved Luton, then contact us either on social media or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Or there are plenty of other ways to get involved.

Would you like to help with the campaign?
We have set up a JustGiving crowdfunding page to help generate funds for our campaign. If you are able, we'd be eternally grateful for your donation, no matter how big or small.
Here's what you've told us
While we believe Luton will be transformed by Power Court and Newlands Park, don’t just take our word for it.
People are having their say as part of our Change.org petition urging Capital & Regional, owners of The Mall shopping centre, to stop blocking a bright new future for Luton. Sign the petition here: https://www.change.org/p/capital-regional-stop-blocking-a-bright-new-future-for-luton
This is a chance to add to the original UK planning record of 11,000 people who wrote to Luton Borough Council in 2016, supporting the plans for Power Court and Newlands Park. The key difference now is the opportunity to tell the major objector why they need to change their stance and listen to what the people of the town want and need.
Also, all your responses (be polite) will be sent direct to the email inboxes of the Capital and Regional Chief Executive and Chairman.
Responses such as these...
This is a massive opportunity for Luton
This is the brightest future Luton has had in many generations
Luton needs to progress for our future generations.
I love my town, and it needs the kiss of life, dont see why non Luton people should dictate to me and affect my children /grandchildrens future
This great town and its community deserve these massive projects that are planned……who in their right minds would feel it necessary to stand against such a desperately needed investment in the town of Luton…..
This is essential for the future of our town and our football club – no one should stand in the way of what is so obviously a hugely beneficial development to Luton.
Future generations will not look kindly upon us if we allow big business to put their greed above this once in a lifetime opportunity to revitalise and regenerate our town.
This development must take place to transform Luton Town Centre for the 21st Century and restore it as a place Lutonians can return to and be proud of!
I. want my grandchildren to grow up to be proud of their town
It is not just about the football stadium, it’s about what the town needs. And the town needs this!
Luton needs this badly not just for the club but for the TOWN!!!!
Luton both need and deserve a better future which the Power Court and Newlands developments offer !!!
This is a great opportunity to regenerate our town and to leave a lasting legacy to future generations
I love Luton amd wamt it to thrive. I want mpre opportunities for young and old.
The whole town not just the football club need this development for future generations to enjoy
Our town needs to move forward with these developments, not just for the football club but for the town as a whole as we are being left behind the other large towns and cities locally, we cannot let them monopolize our town, We need this. THIS IS OUR TOWN!!!!!!!
This is a huge opportunity for not just the football club but the whole town, why should a company from London be able to control the town’s destiny
I believe in this town and it’s people
I love my town and want to see it prosper
Best thing to happen in the history of the town
These projects are vitaly important for the future of Luton!
This will just not benefit the football club, but the whole of the town.
I sincerely believe it will move this town forward , bring opportunities to our community , our present and our future #saveourtown #please #thankyou
Let’s make Luton the town it should be & give the football club the stadium it & its supporters deserve .
I want a brighter, better town to benefit my children and grandchildren. These developments will make everyone proud of our town again.
Both developments are a once in a lifetime opportunity for Luton and c&r do not own the town.
Our Town deserves these fantastic developments. It is just not the Football club and supporters that will benefit. Just for starters a decent music venue would be great as there are no real local venues for larger bands/groups to play.
This will be the most important development in the towns history and nobody should be allowed to stand in the way of this incredible opoutunity which will benefit every Lutonian.
I believe both project will deliver a better future for Luton, culturally and financially
It matters to the folk of Luton, do the right thing and support the proposals for regeneration. PC and NP are the future and the Mall can benefit from this.
I want this great town to have a future and a new football stadium to be proud of.
Luton as a town deserves investment and as a Lutonian I want to be proud of my home town once more.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the whole town and surrounding areas. Our children and grandchildren deserve the regeneration of Luton not more stagnation.
We need to transform our town. The football family need a new stadium, it needs to be in our town, OUR Luton Town!

Why are we raising money?
#saveourtown is a volunteer-led campaign group and, while we have a popular and ever-growing social media presence, we are aiming to reach all members of our community and not everyone is on social media, or online. To produce physical campaign materials and spread the message through community events, this costs money.
So, your generous donations, no matter how big or small, have and will be used to fund the creation and maintenance of promotion activity, purchase materials and prepare advertising campaigns to help spread the word about #saveourtown, and the proposals we support.
For example, your donations have helped pay for this website and for things like banners, that have been paraded on the pitch at Kenilworth Road, plus 80,000 posters and leaflets that were sent to Luton homes, so residents could learn about the once-in-a-lifetime chance to transform their town.
This also provided people with a chance to show their support by putting the posters in their windows to further spread the word. Didn’t get one? Don’t worry you can download the poster here for FREE.
Your donations have made that possible and so much more. Every penny raised will be accounted for and our accounts will be professionally verified annually. And when we all get the victory of progress for Luton, as a community campaign, any funds left when our work is complete will be donated to a Luton charity.
