Student Residences at Manor Park (Phase 1)
Client: University of Surrey
Following our success in achieving outline planning permission for a master plan for the University of Surrey’s Manor Park campus in 2004, Terence O’Rourke was asked by the university to submit a reserved matters application for about 1,700 new student residences.
This application was the first phase of the creation of a new student village, which when complete is planned to have a total of more than 4,000 student beds in purpose built accommodation.
The reserved matters application was granted in 2004, and most of the blocks are now constructed and occupied.
As requirements have been modified over time we have assisted the university in submitting amendments to the original reserved matters for individual blocks as they came forward for construction. In particular, plans for the new reception block changed considerably between reserved matters approval and construction timing, so a fresh planning application was prepared and was granted planning permission.
