Wokingham BC consent to full planning and progress application to Secretary of State for final approval

On the 13th October 2021,  full planning permission was granted by Wokingham Borough Council for Shinfield Studios.  

We are thrilled to have progressed to the next stage of the planning process and thank Wokingham Borough Council, University of Reading and the local community for their support. The final step is to receive approval from the Secretary of State. Once complete we’re looking forward to sharing more details about our plans for a permanent, world-leading production hub in the heart of Wokingham, providing 18 state of the art sound stages for high-end film and television productions.

Works are due to commence on this main site early 2022 with completion by 2024. 

The 4 temporary stages and workshops already built are due to open within the next month and a full press release will be available from Shinfield Studios then.
