Second consultation announced for proposed London Luton Airport expansion – Luton Council
Luton Council’s airport company – London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL) – is pleased to confirm that a second public consultation on its proposed long-term expansion of the airport is to take place this autumn.
The consultation will run for nearly nine weeks from 16 October until 16 December, with a series of 34 consultation events taking place across the town and the region between 25 October and 7 December. There are a number of consultation events planned, the nearest being at Pitstone Memorial Hall from 2pm-8pm on Friday 1 November. Do go along as this is your opportunity to speak to airport representatives, view the plans and ask questions about their expansion proposals.

Following feedback received during its first consultation in summer 2018, LLAL is proposing sustainable, phased growth of the airport to 32 million passengers per annum (mppa) by 2039, by providing a second terminal north of the runway and extensive new airfield infrastructure. Also proposed are a third station and extension for the Luton DART fast transit from Luton Airport Parkway station to the new terminal, plus on- and off-site highway improvements. LLAL is further proposing a new incremental funding package, on expansion consent, that would provide up to an additional £14m a year at 32 mppa for local communities most impacted by airport operations. LLAL is not proposing any changes to the existing single runway – or any increase in the number of night flights currently permitted, from 11.30pm to 6am.
