Welcome to the website of the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group.

Role of the Group

Heathrow Strategic Planning Group (HSPG) is a joint partnership of many of the local authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPS) responsible for planning the land use, transport, environment, economic development and sustainable development of the sub-region surrounding Heathrow Airport.

HSPG was formed in 2015 to jointly shape the proposed expansion of Heathrow airport, regardless of individual members' support or opposition to it. Our current focus is supporting a green recovery from the Covid 19 pandemic across the sub-region - in particular identifying options to accelerate the pace of decarbonisation.

The Group works constructively with but is independent of Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) or any other promoters, and of Government.

HSPG is an informal joint working (unincorporated) partnership and London Borough of Hounslow is the accountable body for the small Core Team of technical and administrative staff who service the Group. See About Us for details of membership organisations and further information.
