Enterprise Centre

Introduction / summary

The 2015 outline planning permission and illustrative Estate Plan highlighted the opportunity to deliver a major academic building to replace the Handa Noh Theatre and adjacent Orchard Building. 

A reserved matters approval for the layout, scale, appearance and landscaping for the construction of an Enterprise Centre for Royal Holloway was submitted to Runnymede Borough Council on 25 March 2019. The building, designed to accommodate activities related to the development, testing or validation of security products and services was granted permission in August 2019. 

The global outbreak of Covid-19 halted the project and the university has since decided to pursue other estate development opportunities. The planning permission lapsed in 2022 and the university is now looking to retain, refurbish and repurpose the Handa Noh Theatre on the site for academic purposes.
