Runnymede campus sold off for new homes!

I just found out about this while noodling around on facebook . For those interested, Brunel University has agreed to sell Runnymede to 'Oracle Homes Runnymede Ltd' for £46.5 million: It seems that Oracle Homes is part of this company - This saddens me. Is it too much to hope that 'the covenant by which the Cheylesmore family donated/sold the campus to London County Council before the war meant that it always had to be used for educational use', may be able to save Runnymede from a horrible 'new homes' future use? Anything we can do to stop them ruining the stunning buildings and grounds? A petition?
