Stop Luton Airport expansion

This petition calls on Luton Borough Council to abandon plans to almost double the capacity of Luton Airport. 

Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate Sam Collins warns local residents not to be hoodwinked into believing the revised proposal for the extension of Luton Airport will bring significant change. Sam Collins said “This is a smoke screen, as introducing a more comprehensive green strategy and aspiring to carbon net zero targets does not make this development any more attractive. Local residents do not want more planes flying over their homes and more traffic on our roads.”  

Luton Rising, whose sole shareholder is Luton Borough council, will launch their third public consultation on the expansion from 8 February until the 4 April 2022, before the plans are submitted to the Department of Transport for approval. Liberal Democrats are calling on people in Hitchin, Harpenden and the surrounding villages to oppose the development.
