Richmond councillors have given unanimous support for a proposal to redevelop Twickenham Film Studios (TFS).
The authority’s planning committee approved the development of the St Margaret’s site, at the planning meeting of the October 27.
The scheme involves:
- A new block at the front corner of the site, together with the partial demolition of another and an extension built
- An additional storey and external stair access to an adjoining block
- An additional storey on another block
- Refurbishment and modernisation of all existing blocks
The proposals would increase the useable floor area and rationalise the existing space to increase efficiency.
The expansion of the world-renowned film studios will create jobs for residents through a local employment agreement, help attract investment from television and film production companies, increase capacity and provide a café and work-spaces the public can use.
Cllr Martin Ellengorn said the scheme ‘ticks every box’ on a site which is part of the town’s heritage.
