Luton Hands In City Status Bid
A delegation of local business leaders, school children and parliamentarians from Luton are heading to Westminster today (Tuesday May 24th) to present Luton’s bid for city status.
More than 20 towns are bidding for the prize of city status as part of the Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations, including Milton Keynes and Corby.
Glyn Jones is Luton Airport’s managing director and chairman of the Love Luton City Status campaign. He’s been telling Heart:
“City status would enable Luton to look to the future, taking the town to the next stage of its transformation and building on its achievements to the benefit of all Lutonians, as well as the many people for whom Luton is their place of work or education, or a destination for shopping, sport, culture and leisure.
“Luton already provides high quality employment opportunities, exceptional transport infrastructure including an international airport, award-winning schools and colleges and a world-class university.
“City status will build on Luton's diversity as a key strength, which enriches the lives of all who live and visit Luton.”
The deadline for applications is Friday May 27th and the winning bid is expected to be announced in February 2012.
An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murdering Leonne Weeks, 16, who was found dead on a path in Rotherham.
