Councillors in Wokingham look set to vote through plans for the massive new Shinfield Studios on Wednesday (October 13).

Wokingham Borough Council’s planning committee has been recommended to grant permission for the 85,000 sq m development across 65 acres at the University of Reading’s  Thames Valley Science Park.

The scheme of 18 sound stages was submitted in May and will bring some of the world’s biggest productions to the Thames Valley.

Shinfield Studios will be a major part of Cine Valley, a major creative hub for the region.

The university held a launch event for Cine Valley on September 3.
