Major plans to build a new film set on the site of a manor house in Bucks have been submitted to the council.

Developers have put forward proposals to construct a film set complete with parking, storage and set construction units on the land at Newland Park in Chalfont St Giles.

The set would be used for a 'television series for a US Production company', although no specific details of the programme have yet been confirmed.

A total of 30 buildings would be temporarily built to incorporate the set, with the existing tennis court on the site set to be utilised for construction purposes, alongside a workshop, welfare station and parking.

The filming would take place over a 16-week period involving 80 day and night shoots, following a three month preparation period.

Involved in the filming will be between 300 and 350 cast and crew.

Developers have sought permission for a 12 month planning application in order to allow for any Covid-related delays to the filming.

Following the conclusion of the filming, developers have ensured that the land will be cleared and the site reinstates to its original condition and appearance.

They have also ensured that 'extensive screening' will ensure that neighbouring properties will not be impacted by the proposal.

Arguing why the planning application should be granted, planners have stated: "Overall, the proposals will not result in physical changes to the fabric of Newland Park and its garden setting.

"The proposed use for filming is temporary in nature and will be removed within 12 months.

"The proposed development, in its chosen location, has sought to respect the significance of the Manor House as an important building of multiple phases, and will have no short or longer term impact upon this heritage asset."
