Luton Rising community fund provides money to a wide range of community groups and organisations in Luton and the surrounding area. We’ve collected some of their stories together to show how vital this financial support is.
London Luton Airport is a key magnet for a wide range of investment, not only in Luton but across the region. It already supports an estimated 27,500 jobs, and generates £1.1 billion economic value every year across Luton, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.
We believe it is realistic to be able to use the existing runway to increase the number of passengers to 32 million per year. This will significantly help with the demand that UK aviation as a whole is facing, and bring further benefits and opportunities to Luton and the rest of the three counties, through increased jobs, revenues and economic growth.
An ambitious vision like this is complicated. There are legal processes that need to be followed for any planning application of this size, which would be determined by the Government, not the council.
Luton Rising looks forward to receiving your opinions as part of this process which will be carefully considered as proposals for the future of the airport are further developed.
The airport’s expansion plans support the Luton 2040 Vision – Luton's agenda to deliver a carbon-neutral town and ensure no-one needs to live in poverty.
