Welcome to the website of the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group.

Role of the Group

Heathrow Strategic Planning Group (referred to as the Group or HSPG) represents many of local authorities and other public organisations responsible for planning the land use, transport, environment, economic development and sustainable development of the sub-region surrounding Heathrow Airport. HSPG works proactively to shape any proposals for expansion of the airport to ensure these are sustainably planned, and to maximise the benefits and minimise the impacts felt across the area. The Group works constructively with but is independent of Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) or any other promoters, and of Government. The individual member organisations have their own policy positions on the proposal for a third runway and proposed changes to aircraft flightpaths and operations.

HSPG is an informal joint working (unincorporated) partnership and Slough Borough Council 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.
