Pinewood Studio's site in Iver Heath will now include new stages, studios, and workshops in plans approved by the government, adding a further 100,000m2 to the plot.

Ivan Dunleavy, Chief Executive of Pinewood Studios, said, “As a result of today’s green light from the Secretary of State, thousands of much needed new jobs will be created in this growing sector of the economy,” in a statement published on the group’s website.

Home to more than 1,500 movies over its 76 year lifespan, Pinewood Studios is a major player in the film production world. Officially opened in 1936 the studio has become synonymous with names like Bond, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.

Mark Cass, managing director of Escape Technology, commented “As a major reseller of technology and software to the film industry this expansion comes at a really exciting time. It’s great to see the government investing in the continued and sustained growth of the creative industries within the UK.”
