Twickenham Studios’ plan to future-proof its two acre site has been given the green light by Richmond Council.
The development will include an extension of approximately 19,000 sq ft across the site, with the majority of new space to be used in association with the operation of the studios.
The company says it expects to provide 60 new jobs once the project is complete.
TFS is aiming to create a hybrid of film studios and production facilities on the site. Sustainability is expected to play pivotal role in the work, with initiatives that enhance site’s biodiversity, urban greening and reduce carbon emissions through the use of on site renewables.
Cara Sheppard, managing director of Twickenham Film Studios, said: “This approval means we can forge ahead at pace with our ambitious site wide plans for a centre of creative, tech and innovation excellence here in St Margarets.
“A campus that will nurture and welcome next generation talent, as well as attracting world renowned talent to further compliment our current multi-award winning artists and expert management team we have brought together all working to meet the ever increasing demand of film & TV content.”
