Pinewood Studios moves into housebuilding

  • Comment
Pinewood Shepperton, the legendary British film studios, is planning a vast £200 million expansion which will provide more than 2,000 new homes in Buckinghamshire.

The proposals, drawn up by architect James Burland of Burland TM, will also recreate a variety of locations, such as downtown New York and a Venetian canal, within a 40ha greenbelt site in Iver Heath.

A spokesman for the studios said: ‘Project Pinewood will allow directors to move from Lake Como to New York in one afternoon, with all the most sophisticated equipment and specialist personnel in place and ready to use.’

Burland is more famous for his work on sports stadia, such as Manchester City’s new football ground Eastlands, which was first used as the Commonwealth Games’ main stadium.

Pinewood Studios has been part of the British film industry for the last 70 years. Pinewood Shepperton is expected to submit a planning application early next year.
