Pinewood Studios are bringing forward Phase 3 of the Pinewood Studios Development Framework (PSDF) to deliver the studios expansion. Phases 1 and 2 of the PSDF are built out and operational.
A series of web-based Zoom briefings was held w/c 24th August 2020 to update those residents most affected by the development proposals, with an opportunity to comment and ask questions of Pinewood Studios management and Turley Consultants.
The 2014 outline planning application anticipated that Phase 3 would deliver two three storey office buildings and car parking. The proposals for Phase 3 have since evolved, based on what Pinewood describes as "operational needs at the Studios", and now include four stages within three buildings and a small workshop with associated parking. The footprint of the Phase 3 development zone remains the same and will not be over any more land than the permitted scheme.
Pinewood Studios are also looking to deliver new planting and landscaping in the southern fields, between the site for Phase 3 and Pinewood Green. Plans for these are by no means finalised and there is still time for input.
Work started in late November on the site to erect a large temporary stage whilst full planning permission is sought for the permanent development. A part of the field next to the attenuation pond has been fenced off as the large temporary stage build is completed.
