The in-person consultation event for the proposed long-term expansion of London Luton Airport, scheduled to be held later today in Stevenage, has been postponed due to Storm Eunice.

The storm has sparked an amber weather warning, meaning there is an increased likelihood of impacts from severe weather - such as travel delays, road and rail closures, power cuts and the potential risk to life and property.

Subsequently, the London Luton Airport event at Stevenage Arts and Leisure Centre, that was to take place between 3pm and 8pm, has been postponed.

Cllr Javeria Hussain, chair of Luton Rising, said: “An amber storm warning means that people are advised to take extra care when travelling, and that there is a risk of disruption and even danger to life from flying debris. For safety reasons, we are clear that no-one should have to make an unnecessary journey tomorrow on our account.

“We apologise sincerely for the inconvenience caused for reasons which are clearly beyond our control.

"We are already working to reschedule this important consultation event in Stevenage before the consultation closes on April 4, 2022, if at all possible, so that local people can meet our project team and ask any questions they may have about our proposals. We will make a further announcement as soon as possible.”

In the meantime you can visit the online consultation room available 24/7 at to learn more about the plans for our airport expansion and provide your response to the consultation.
