Biodiversity Habitat Audits

Biodiversity Habitat Audits

Biodiversity on the Royal Holloway Campus has long been of interest for informing grounds management and academic pursuit.

Studies have been conducted in numerous areas related to biodiversity, including to inform the Campus Development Masterplan and associated planning submissions.

Since 2023, we’ve been systematically recording biodiversity data, independent of specific development proposals, to help us understand long-term patterns and inform future enhancements. Royal Holloway has been working with Surrey Wildlife Trust on developing a fuller record and locally informed understanding of biodiversity on campus. This work has included the formation a Habitat Audit that establishes a baseline of biodiversity on campus and indicators to assess future progression.

The data also helps address the Biodiversity Net Gain requirements of the Town Planning system and contributes to an ongoing review of the Habitat Management Plan for the campus.
