The future of film in London is ‘Made in Dagenham’!

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, and the Leader of Barking and Dagenham Council, Cllr Darren Rodwell, have announced plans for Dagenham East to become a world-leading destination for the production of blockbuster movies, as an expert study shows how the area is the ideal location for Hollywood-style studio space.

BBP Regeneration was part of the consultancy team behind the feasibility study, which outlines the opportunity for a world-class film studio in Dagenham East. This will support the long-term success of the UK’s booming film and TV production industries, bolster Film London’s work in attracting major new projects to the capital while also contributing to the regeneration of east London and supporting the Mayor’s ambition for creative production along the Thames Estuary.
