Engaging with the local community

Engaging with the local community

We value our relationship with the local community

We are committed to engaging and consulting with the local community; we regularly engage with residents groups, councillors and businesses and our Community Matters newsletter shares university news and updates on projects and community initiatives. Throughout 2019 we also held regular consultation events sharing our plans to develop our historic estate and seeking feedback.

The termly Community Matters e-newsletter shares information about university news, projects and community initiatives. Read the latest issues. Email the Community Matters team to sign up to receive your copy. 

We hold termly drop-in sessions for local residents that provide an opportunity for individual members of the local community to discuss topics of concern to them with a representative from the university.

Due to current coronavirus restrictions, the university will hold its usual termly drop-in session via telephone appointments.

Find out here when the next session is and sign up to Community Matters newsletter to keep up to date on future sessions.

The Royal Holloway and Runnymede Consultative Group is a forum where topics of interest and / or concern to the communities in the Egham and Englefield Green Village areas can be discussed and debated by representatives from and stakeholders in those local communities with a view to identifying possible solutions, agreeing actions and allocating responsibility for those actions.

The goal is that through shared understanding and collective action, issues can be resolved and agendas of mutual concern progressed.

The forum attendees are:

  • The Mayor of Runnymede or their delegated alternative
  • Councillors from Egham Town, Englefield Green West and Englefield Green East
  • Nominated representatives from:
    • Egham Residents Association
    • Englefield Green Village Residents' Association
    • Egham Chamber of Commerce
    • Runnymede Neighbourhood Watch
    • Surrey Police
    • Runnymede Borough Environmental Health

As well as the dedicated web pages where you can find information about the current and potential Royal Holloway estate development projects and submit comments, throughout 2019 a series of consultation events  were held.  At these events we discussed our plans with members of the local community and sought feedback, which has been used to inform and help shape the proposed future developments plans.
