Terence O’Rourke was originally appointed by the University of Surrey in 1996 as planning consultants and to provide masterplanning and environmental impact assessment for a new campus to expand teaching facilities and student accommodation.

We secured a development allocation for university purposes in the local plan which involved removal of 70 ha of land from the green belt. Care was taken to protect a scheduled monument and views to and from a nearby Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The masterplan was granted outline planning permission in 2004 and we continue to be involved in a series of reserved matters and full planning applications for student residences, sports facilities, academic buildings and ancillary development. About 3,000 new student residences have now been built, plus the impressive new Surrey Sports Park building, a new School of Veterinary Medicine and other academic / research accommodation.
