Iconic Pinewood Studios is set to double in size after winning an appeal against the rejection of its £200m expansion plan.

The government has granted planning permission for the 15-year project including new stages and streetscapes at the site in Iver Heath.

Matthew Fell, CBI director for competitive markets, said: “Pinewood has showcased the best of British film talent on and off screen for decades, so this chance to expand can help boost investment and jobs in the industry.

“The UK’s creative industries are already world-beaters and make a huge contribution to our economy. Now we need to build on this potential to help them achieve even greater global success.”
