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.
