A major film and TV studio in Leavesden could be set for a major expansion following a Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) planning meeting.
The expansion at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden includes the provision of new sound stages, workshops, and production and post-production offices, as well as a new roundabout to provide vehicular access to the studios and the construction of decked car parking.
A number of films and TV series have been filmed at the studios over the years, including the Harry Potter series and HBO’s House of the Dragon.
A spokesperson for TRDC said: “There was a lengthy debate at last night’s [December 15] Planning Committee meeting, which eventually resolved to grant planning permission for an expansion of the film studios at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
“Due to the scale and nature of the proposals and the location, the matter is now referred to the Secretary of State to decide whether to confirm the council can issue the planning permission or whether to call it in for a formal review.”
