Marlow Film Studios (MFS) has submitted its full planning application to Buckinghamshire Council this week.

The application which is under 400 documents will be validated by the planning authority and will then be available to view publicly on the council’s website.

The “state-of-the-art” film studio plan will see a 167.8 thousand square metre production facility built on the site next to the A404 Westhorpe junction at Little Marlow.

MFS said its proposals promise to create up to 4,180 jobs.

Robert Laycock, MFS chief executive said: “Our ambition is not only to provide a best-in-class, sustainable film studio which will attract global investment and prosperity to the area, – but also to deliver up to 4180 jobs as well as a traineeship scheme linked to local schools and colleges which will support the UK’s burgeoning film industry.

“The Marlow Film Studios presents a unique opportunity for substantial new investment into Bucks and the project will cement the county’s place as the home of high-end film & TV production in the UK, and one of the most attractive places in the world to make movies.”

The planning application provides details of a new transport hub providing a direct and half-hourly bus between Maidenhead and High Wycombe and a new half hourly hopper service around Marlow, Little Marlow and Bourne End.

There are also plans for a network of cycle routes and pedestrian pathways, a new community and a culture and skills academy hub where education and training events and a cultural programme would be hosted.
