We’re watching with increased excitement as plans for a substantial addition to the ‘Cine Valley’ project (a world-leading production hub near our offices in Wokingham) gets its penultimate thumbs up.
On October 13th Wokingham Borough Council granted full planning permission for Shinfield Studios to build 18 state of the art sound stages for high-end film and television production in Cine Valley. This would be huge for the area if it succeeds. It has just one final hurdle, an approval from the Secretary of State.
The studio will attract global film projects and provide approximately 3,000 new job opportunities locally. The development will bring international and national creative input to our area and really put Wokingham “on the map”
Subject to the outcome, work is scheduled to start on this main site early 2022 with completion by 2024. The organisation will be looking to build long term relationships with its neighbours. As a logistics company with a great many film production clients, we’ll be sure to say hello.
