Work will get underway on Liverpool’s new Littlewood Film Studios this month after the project received planning approval from the local council.
The studios are expected to be operational by spring 2021.
Joe Anderson, mayor of Liverpool, said: “I’m delighted we’ve got the green light to create these new sound stages and I can’t wait to see them welcoming their first productions.
“Being adjacent to the future Littlewoods Film Studios, the new sound studios will transform Liverpool’s ability to provide the TV and film industry with a complete support package. Such is the interest in the city and in these new facilities we’re already getting calls about bookings before we’ve even built them!
“These sound studios also mean the city will have all the right ingredients to be a ‘Hollywood of the North’ for training, production content and talent in Liverpool – which will lead to more investment and more jobs,” he added.
