Shepperton Studios to add new sound stages and expand facilities

Posted on: Wednesday 20th of June 2018

shepperton_studios_resolutionmagShepperton Studios is planning a major expansion to add new sound stages, offices, workshops, backlots, car parking and infrastructure. It also hopes to create some much-needed new access for the site. Shepperton Studios – part of the Pinewood group, and a key facility for the UK film industry – has 14 sound stages, an exterior backlot and a range of post-production facilities.

Before submitting a planning application for the studio expansion, the company is consulting with the local authority and stakeholders on its proposals, which will mean development of the studio complex on land adjacent to its current site. The studios will hold a series of public events to present its expansion plans to the local community, councillors and the film and television industry, and has also created a consultation website.

Andrew Smith, corporate affairs director, Shepperton Studios said: “The studios attract major and independent production companies from around the world to shoot in the UK. Our proposals are designed to both improve and expand the existing facilities such that we can continue to meet the demand for high-end studio space and thus ensure the ongoing success of the UK’s creative sector.”
