In relation to the expansion proposals by Heathrow as part of its DCO application, the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group (HSPG) is working to develop a non-statutory sub-regional planning framework (JSPF). The JSPF is to be a non-statutory guide to future planning to secure gains from collaborative working. It has been supported and encouraged by MHCLG and evolved through a working group drawn from HSPG member Councils. Currently both Runnymede Council and Spelthorne Council are considering thei

The emphasis on supporting initiatives that encourage modal shift towards more sustainable forms of transport is welcomed. There is an opportunity to deliver a new bus service to Heathrow from Kempton Park and an upgraded service linking Kempton Park Station to a Southern Light Rail terminal at Staines should this go ahead. However, the policy should provide greater certainty on how any growth, including additional housing needs, associated with expansion of the airport will be accommodated wit

General comments: Whilst we support the Policy in principle, as discussed in response to Policy SP3 above, given the status of the expansion of Heathrow as a NSIP, we consider the Council should afford more weight to those sites which are proposed to be included in the proposals. We have detailed above how we contend the Council has incorrectly assessed Site B and in so doing, have simply ignored the Airport's identification of this land because it is in the Green Belt. Whilst we contend Site B

The Airports National Policy Statement (ANPS) received Parliamentary approval in June 2018. Heathrow Airport Limited (HAL) have recently confirmed that they will be undertaking a final round of consultation in April 2020, due to the decision by the Civil Aviation Authority to cap early costs, prior to submitting a Development Consent Order (DCO) application 'towards the end of 2020'. Subject to the DCO being approved, the third runway is currently forecast to open between early 2028 and late 202

RBWM is opposed to the expansion of Heathrow Airport, but in the event that the project goes ahead, it will be important to mitigate the impact of travel to and from the airport. RBWM Highways particularly supports initiatives that encourage a modal shift with a greatly increased proportion of trips via public transport, walking and cycling. This is needed to mitigate the impacts of construction, passengers staff and freight traffic and the policy should be amended to recognise the separate imp

Policy SP7 should provide explicit support for measures to improve bus services, cycling and walking. SP7 does recognise the need for Southern Rail Access (SRA) but then focuses on promoting the borough's preferred Southern Light Rail scheme. While such a scheme would provide a direct link to Staines town centre, it would leave many key centres in both South London and Surrey without the fast, direct rail access offered by alternative SRA options. The concern is that the Southern Light Rail sche

We welcome the inclusion of Policy SP7 and in particular the in-principle support it provides for the sustainable expansion of Heathrow Airport. We support the Council's commitment to working strategically with local authorities around the airport, and we place value on the role and work of the Heathrow Strategic Planning Group (HSPG), including the Council's membership of this forum. We consider the points outlined in a), b) and d) to be a reasonable position and do not suggest any substantive

Policy SP7: Heathrow Airport The reasoned justification for this policy should mention traffic congestion which is a key driver for promoting sustainable modes of travel. Airport parking development is an issue that should be considered for inclusion within this policy. Heathrow Airport Limited is developing a surface access strategy and reference should be made to this within either this policy or the supporting text.

We support the Council's position in supporting the sustainable expansion of Heathrow Airport through the southern rail access. The development of this rail link will support the local area and improve public transport links to London and other major UK cities. However, we consider there would be greater benefits to the wider strategic area for the access link to run between Terminal 5 and East Bedfont. We support the Council's position in seeking to work strategically with other local authorit

Policy SP7 (Heathrow Airport): We would highlight that the CVRP CIC objects to the expansion of the airport because of the damaging environmental impact. We do not therefore, concur with your support 'in principle'. That said, we ask that the environmental criteria in this policy be strengthened to draw in, for example, comprehensive improvements across the zone around the airport down to and beyond Staines Moor - to the river systems, the green corridors, their biodiversity qualities and connec
