Hertsmere Borough Council has now granted planning permission to Elstree Studios for the building of two new superstages along with workshops and offices at the Elstree Studios Borehamwood site.
Sky has also revealed its plans to councillors and residents of Borehamwood for the new Sky Studios Elstree, an impressive Studio complex, to be built on a large site a short distance from Elstree Studios.
With Sky Studios Elstree, BBC Studios Elstree, and Elstree Studios there will now be at least 26 Film and TV Stages all based in Borehamwood/ Elstree.
Elstree says the new stages and studios will create 1000s of film and TV jobs and will benefit many of the graduates from the Elstree University Technical College, the vocational college for Film, TV and Theatre (set up by Roger Morris, Managing Director of Elstree Studios and Chair of the EUTC). The college, which has been in existence for 5 years, announced that students who graduated last year have all found employment, or have gone on to further study at University.
Elstree Studios is the home to Sony Leftbank, Netflix production The Crown and entertainment shows including Strictly Come Dancing, The Voice and League of Their Own. Television Technical Facilities are provided at Elstree Studios by BBC StudioWorks.
