Pinewood Studios expansion and nature reserve approved

Pinewood Studios Expansion Planning Approval Faulknerbrowns Architects Lh

The expansion of Pinewood Studios and a new nature reserve have been granted planning approval by Buckinghamshire Council.

We collaborated with Pinewood Studios to produce the designs proposals, which include 21 new purpose-built sound stages, a backlot filming space and a 63-acre publicly accessible nature reserve. Once complete, this would make Pinewood Studios the largest studio complex in the world, with a total of 51 purpose-built stages.

The nature reserve at Alderbourne Farm, north of the current studios, will protect existing habitats and create walking routes with enhanced biodiversity.

'We are delighted to see this approval for Pinewood Studios. Our proposals will create much needed production resources for the UK film and TV industry, attracting new talent while also creating somewhere that local people can enjoy.'
