Many of our local residents attended the open surgery that London Luton Airport held at the Village Hall.

It was good that we could voice our concerns directly to the Airport officials, the main issue was the noise impact caused by planes leaving the airport on the westerly route that favoured flying over Markyate instead of keeping closer to the centre line of the flight path.

We also had a noise monitor trailer placed in the village,  the concern then was  this was too far away from the centre monitoring line, the airport have now agreed they will place a smaller size monitor closer to the centre monitoring line.  it will be in place for two months and will give a more accurate reading of the noise problem.

Please continue to contact London Luton Airport with your noise complains.
