A film crew shooting a new movie in Wycombe have been branded ‘reckless’ over concerns that their project will create traffic and noise.

Element Pictures have been given permission to build a temporary film set on land at Hollow Wood, Benhams Lane in the Wycombe district village of Fawley.

The award-winning firm has started setting up the site for new film ‘Bugonia’ and will shoot all scenes at a small, American-style home called ‘Teddy’s House’.

Element has previously worked on Netflix, BBC and Film4 productions, including the recent Poor Things, starring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo and Willem Dafoe.

The production house’s plans for its latest film set in Fawley – and accompanying parking arrangements – have been given the green light by the council.

However, residents of Fawley have raised concerns over potential noise, light and air pollution at the site, as well as extra traffic on local single-track roads.

In a letter of objection, Mrs Marina Fogle wrote: “Considering the production company have informed us that the only weekends they will not be working will be those where the noise levels from other events render it impossible, this feels recklessly antisocial and un-neighbourly.”

However, there have been several letters of support for the filming plans for the site, which has previously hosted ‘Tough Mudder’ assault course events.

In a bid to reassure residents, Bryony Preen, Element’s location manager, said that construction, preparation and reinstatement works will typically be restricted to between 8am and 6pm.

Element said it would use ‘super silent’ generators and not play music during filming.
