A group campaigning against the expansion of Luton airport has asked for clarification on whether the number of night flights will increase if the proposals go ahead.
London Luton Airport Limited and London Luton Airport Operations Limited are currently working on a joint proposal to enhance access to the airport, improve the passenger experience, increase capacity and produce the best possible value for partners and airport users as well as generating jobs.
But Luton and District Association for the Control of Aircraft Noise (LADACAN) have expressed their concern about the amount of noise that would be created if more night flights are made.
LADACAN secretary Roger Wood said: “The last planning permission for the airport included totally meaningless noise restrictions.
“We need to ensure there is much tougher regulation and a far more effective and proactive approach to noise mitigation.
“None of our questions about night flights have yet been answered.” A spokesman for LLAL said: “As the plans are still being put together, it is very difficult to give a response as yet.
“We would like to reassure residents that with another consultation coming up, everyone will be able to express their views and any concerns.”
