A digital future for Luton

What would you prefer your council tax was spent on? Printing a monthly newspaper, or services for local people like education, health and maintaining our roads?

Services, you say? We thought so...which is why we are no longer producing our monthly printed newspaper, Lutonline, We've created e-Luton to share council updates and local news with you digitally.
