and Enterprise Campus
Richmond upon Thames College, Haymarket Media Group, Harlequins, Clarendon School, Waldegrave School, Richmond Council and Achieving for Children are working together to create an Education and Enterprise Campus on the College site on Egerton Road in Twickenham. The ambition is to redevelop the site to include new college buildings, a new secondary school (The Richmond upon Thames School), purpose-built accommodation for Clarendon School, and Haymarket’s new “tech hub” and digital media incubator – all on a single Campus. The Campus, in addition to benefiting the education of local young people, will deliver real benefits to the wider community.

Education and Enterprise Campus gets Planning Committee thumbs up
Proposals to create an Education and Enterprise Campus were given the green-light at a special Planning Committee on 7 March. The Committee considered and approved a series of documents including ‘parameter’ plans and a Development Specification and Design Code – describing the extent of the development and expected design quality for the buildings and site landscape. The proposals are still subject to GLA sign-off, legal agreements confirming planning commitments and a number of pre-commencement conditions.
