Called Project Pinewood, the site will be made up of various locations specifically designed for the production of film and television, as well as residential developments.
These include street scenes from London, New York, Paris and Los Angeles as well as an amphitheatre, a castle and a Venetian canal. The locations were chosen as some that are used most often in dramatisations.
Up to 2,250 residential units are planned to be integrated with the film locations. These will include affordable housing and are intended to bring a creative community together in the UK for the first time, conforming with the Government’s demand for more sustainable communities.
Its position near Iver, near the proposed Crossrail link, and its proximity to the M25 and M40 will ensure sufficient public transport links for the development.
Pinewood Shepperton, the company behind the project, will submit a planning application in 2008.
