Pinewood Studios, home of the James Bond franchise, wants to double production capacity on green belt land
Pinewood Studios, the home of films including the James Bond franchise and Les Misérables, is submitting fresh plans to double its production capacity by developing a £200m site set on 100 acres of greenbelt land in Buckinghamshire.
The owners of the studio, which saw its original plan blocked by the communities minister, Eric Pickles, last January after five years of opposition at every step of the planning process, will submit radically revised plans for a new project to South Buckinghamshire district council on Friday.
There is already significant opposition in Buckinghamshire to the proposed HS2 high-speed train route, which would pass to the north of the Pinewood studios site and cut a swath through green belt land in the Chilterns.
Pinewood is in the constituency of Dominic Grieve, the Conservative MP for Beaconsfield and the attorney-general. »
