Luton Airport Planning Permission 15/00950/VARCON Update

Living Magazines Luton Airport Expansion

Our Winter issues contain an update on the Luton Airport situation but, in the meantime, we have received a further letter from Luton Borough Council with regards to accommodating 19 million passengers per annum and day and night noise concerns under the above reference.

These matters will be considered at a Development Management Committee Meeting on 30 November 2021 and in the case of business not being concluded by 10pm, will reconvene on 1 December 2021. Both meetings will commence at 6pm. The meeting will be hybrid and you are able to attend in person at the Town Hall or join remotely. The officer’s recommendation is for Application Permitted. The officer’s report will be available from 5pm on Friday 19 November 2021 and will be found using the Committees section at:

There will be one opportunity for each of the following to speak on the application:

  • Interest groups (comprising someone wh has made representations on behalf of a group of people based on technical expertise)
  • Interested parties
  • The applicant

Each party can register to speak regardless of the recommendation. Please note that councillors do not have to accept the officer’s recommendation, but where this happens, they must give reasons why they have overturned the recommendation.
