Elstree Studios gains expansion approval

New stages to be built on former Big Brother studio site

Elstree Studios’ expansion plans have been approved by Hertsmere Borough Council, enabling the building of two new stages, workshops and offices at its Shenley Road site in Borehamwood.

The new stages will be built on the former Big Brother studio site and are said to be similar to the nearby George Lucas stages, where Strictly Come Dancing is currently filmed.

Sky also revealed plans to councillors and residents for the new Sky Studios Elstree, to be built on a 32-acre site a short distance from Elstree Studios.

The new stages and studios are expected to create thousands of film and TV jobs, benefiting many graduates from the Elstree University Technical College (EUTC).
