Expansion of London Luton Airport
- Total signatures (offline and online) as at 17 September 2023: 1,070
Thank you to the hundreds of people who’ve signed the hard copy version of this petition. I’ve set up this page for anyone who hasn’t been able to sign the hard copy petition and would like to do so online.
Luton’s communities are resilient, caring and have supported each other through a number of difficult years. Vital funds generated from our airport have helped keep the town afloat. And the importance of the airport to the town have never been as clear following the impact of COVID and the current cost of living crisis.
But poverty remains too high in Luton which is why we support the plans to grow London Luton Airport. It would bring around 11,000 new jobs to the town. It would also produce millions of pounds of additional funding for local charities, helping to transform thousands of lives in our community.
In addition, growing the airport would help to bring more investment and business activity to Luton, growing our local economy by more than £1 billion. We need this to stop our children growing up in poverty.
Importantly, we understand that these benefits will not come at the expense of the planet and people's quality of life, as we know Luton Rising will put stringent environmental constraints on any future growth.
There are hard copy versions of this petition circulating across Luton to ensure it is accessible to all of our communities – please get in touch if you want some hard copies as we really want Luton's voice to be heard.
