Role of the Group
The HSPG represents the local authorities and other public organisations responsible for the land use planning, transport, environment, economic development and sustainable development in the wider area surrounding Heathrow Airport.

The individual member organisations have their own policy positions on proposals (whether supporting or opposing) for a third runway and changes to aircraft flightpaths and operations – which will all be subject to public consultations by Heathrow Airport during 2019.
