A consultation has been launched concerning proposals to redevelop Langleybury House and the surrounding grounds into a film hub.
The application for the development of the area, located just off Langleybury Lane, was first submitted to Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) in October of last year.
If approved, the plans would see the mansion and the nearby barn repurposed as a hub for film and TV projects. The children’s farm would be demolished, while a new café would be built in the walled garden and more car parking created.
There would also be sound stages, backlots and craft workshop buildings, amongst other developments.
Though a consultation has already taken place, a new one has now begun due to several amendments made to the application.
These include a reduction in the height of the proposed educational building to one or two storeys, the number of planned sound stages being reduced from four to two, and a 50 per cent reduction of floorspace for the aforementioned café, as well as other alterations.
These changes came after discussions between the developers and Historic England.
A design statement by the developer, Ralph Trustees Ltd, reads: “Langleybury Mansion remains an ideal, flexible blank canvas site for any period-based filming project.”
To take part in the consultation, you can visit TRDC’s planning portal and search for the application using the reference 22/1945/FUL.
The deadline for the consultation is Saturday, September 9.
