Petition Reject any future applications to increase passenger numbers at Luton Airport
Luton Council are consulting on increasing passenger numbers from 18 to 32million per year as a preliminary step for an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO). We call upon the UK Government to refuse any future application to increase the number of passengers using London Luton Airport.
This expansion of airport capacity is surely contrary to the recommendations of the Committee on Climate Change.
The airport (LLA) doubled its capacity between 2014 and 2019, creating immense strain on local transport infrastructure, unbearable noise impacts on neighbouring communities and increased greenhouse gas emissions.
Now LLA wants to almost double its capacity from 18 million passengers a year to 32 million, despite the Climate Emergency and the impact the increase in flights will surely have on the environment.
