What will be on the Campus?

CURRENT CONSULTATIONS: Richmond College and RTS Sports Building

Residents are invited to have their say on the detailed designs of a new Sports Building that will be at the heart of the new Richmond Education and Enterprise Campus.

Building work is already well underway on the creation of new buildings for The Richmond upon Thames School (RTS) and purpose-built accommodation for Clarendon Special Needs School. Work on Richmond upon Thames College’s new main building will start later this year followed by the construction of Haymarket’s new “tech hub” and digital media incubator.

As part of the development, outline Planning Permission has already been granted for a new Sports Building. The facility will be jointly run by both the College and RTS. It will feature: two sports halls, an activity studio, sports and fitness gym and a sports lab.

It is hoped that the construction of the Sports Building would commence in January 2019. Richmond College and RTS are now consulting on proposals for the ‘Reserved Matters’ stage of Planning for this building. This consultation will consider external elevations, landscaping, parking, materials and construction access. In addition, the partnership is keen to hear from residents their views on how the new Sports Building can benefit the local community.
