An independent Planning Inquiry is currently under way, and LADACAN is representing the members of local groups and some Parish Councils who are opposed to legitimising Luton Airport’s repeated breaches of noise conditions. This is the first time a truly independent light has been shone on a planning decision relating to Luton Airport for 17 years.
Three National Planning Inspectors will hear evidence from now until the middle of November while reviewing last year’s decision by Luton Borough Council to grant permission for further expansion 7 years ahead of schedule, rather than insisting that the Airport honoured its commitments to respect noise limits.
