HALE is an alliance of campaign groups all opposed to any further capacity expansion at Luton Airport:
SLAE – Stop Luton Airport Expansion
www.stoplae.org/ or click SLAE
SLFFL – Stop Low Flights from Luton
HALE draws the line:
- NO further degradation of quality of life in Hertfordshire
- NO further congestion on the roads and trains
- NO further increases in noise, pollution and emissions
- NO further massive expansion of Luton Airport.
Since 2014 Luton Airport expansion has been an incentivised ‘dash for cash: cram in as many flights as possible to maximise revenue without delivering airspace change, quieter aircraft, or surface transport improvement.
Luton Borough Council’s airport holding company is now applying for further doubling to 32 million passengers by 2039, which would mean: 50% more road users and 30,000 more rail passengers a day, Wigmore Park becoming Terminal 2, and 80,000 extra flights a year adding to climate change and local pollution and particulates.
