On 6 April 2022, the Secretary of State for the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities called in the above planning application for his determination. A public inquiry has been organised by the Planning Inspectorate which will commence on 27 September 2022.

On 30 June 2002 the applicant, London Luton Airport Operations Limited, advised the Planning Inspectorate that and addendum to the Environmental Statement was intended to be submitted in order to bring the relevant baseline and forecast information up to date prior to the public inquiry’s consideration of the application.

The addendum to the Environmental Statement has now been submitted and is considered ‘any other information’ pursuant to Regulation 25 of the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017, and as such a further period of public consultation is being undertaken.

The addendum to the Environmental Statement can be viewed on the dedicated Luton Airport Public Inquiry website, hosted by Gateley Hamer at
