CONSULTATION on proposals which are feared could reroute air traffic over a village and its surroundings has been extended for four weeks
It was due to end on May 22 but has now been extended for a further four weeks to gather views.
The proposals from the National Air Traffic Service (NATS) will see changes in the flight path from Luton Airport including funnelling 7,500 aircraft annually into a narrow path over Wheathampstead and the surrounding area.
It has led to fears about the impact of noise and pollution on the quality of life for local residents and councillors in the village have been urging them to voice their concerns.
