Elstree Studios has been granted planning permission by Hertsmere Borough Council’s planning committee to build a new studio on the four acre plot recently cleared area at the back of the studio complex.

The proposal for the new studio near to the Big Brother House and the George Lucas stages was given permission to build by the planning committee on Thursday May 26.

The plan is to build a new stage the same height as the Lucas Stages but larger at over 21,000 sq. ft. with connected scenery storage, workshops and production offices.

Hertsmere Borough Councillors said: “Elstree Studios is a jewel in Hertsmere’s crown and we should encourage their endeavours in every way.”

All members of the planning committee voted for the application.

Managing Director of Elstree Studios, Roger Morris, said: “We already have clients who wish to use the new stage once it is built. It will probably be the best multipurpose film and TV stage in the UK.”

Over the last year, Elstree Studios has hosted productions including Strictly Come Dancing, The Danish Girl and new drama The Crown.
