SCENE SET FOR PINEWOOD EX­PAN­SION

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

BUSI­NESS sec­re­tary Sa­jid Javid paid a visit to Pinewood Stu­dios to view progress of the site’s ex­pan­sion.

Mr Javid went along to the fa­mous stu­dios in Iver Heath last month and was taken on a tour of the build­ing work go­ing on there by di­rec­tor An­drew Smith.

Work on the ex­pan­sion, which Pinewood Stu­dios says will al­low it to con­tinue to at­tract top pro­duc­tions from around the world, be­gan ear­lier this year.

Mr Javid was able to see the progress made on de­vel­op­ing the new stages at the build­ing site, which is next to the main Pinewood Stu­dios lo­ca­tion in Pinewood Road.

It is es­ti­mated that once the ex­pani­sion is com­pleted, it will sup­port 8,100 full time jobs and gen­er­ate an ad­di­tional £37m per year in UK ex­ports.
