London’s film industry hub to flourish

The Mayor of London has appointed BBP Regeneration as part of a team of consultants, including SQW and Richard Miller (Professor of Film and Creative Economy at the University of Hertfordshire) to deliver the feasibility study for the London’s largest new film studios in London, to be situated at Dagenham East.

A new film studio complex in Dagenham would enable London to bid successfully for more overseas film productions, benefitting not just the capital but the rest of the UK. It would also create a range of permanent jobs in the East End with ambitions to diversify the industry’s workforces, recognising broader skillsets that are necessary for film production – from carpenters to sound technicians.
