A two-month consultation on potential expansion of Luton Airport has been launched by Luton Council in the name of its airport company, London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL). It runs until 31 August.
A series of 17 consultation events is taking place in and around Luton between 9 July and 4 August, at which LLAL says everyone will have the opportunity to view the plans, speak to members of the project team and provide feedback.
LLAL says the airport, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year, is the fastest-growing of the UK’s major airports and “because LLAL is wholly owned by Luton Council, local and regional communities share in that success”. The airport has a contract with an Australian/Spanish consortium as operator until 2030.
The company also claims the airport could more than double the number of passengers it serves by providing more space for passengers and aircraft, without building a new runway.
LLAL chairman Andy Malcolm said: “We believe it is important that the public have the chance to be involved throughout the expansion planning process right from the earliest stage.
“We are committed to minimising and mitigating as far as possible, the impacts of expansion. In this consultation we will show our assessments of the impacts, and ask for feedback on our proposals for mitigating them.”
