Marlow Film Studios application refused

May 31, 2024

The proposed Marlow Film Studio backed by James Cameron has been refused planning permission.

Buckinghamshire Council backed a recommendation from its planning officers that Marlow Film Studios’ plans for Marlow quarry be refused, as concerns were raised that the site was an inappropriate development for greenbelt land and would have a significant impact on the local road network.

Robert Laycock, chief executive of Marlow Film Studios, commented:

“We are disappointed the committee was not able to support this extraordinary proposal.”

Laycock said the committee had highlighted the “significant social and economic benefits” the proposed studio would bring to Buckinghamshire.

“We are disappointed the committee was not able to support this extraordinary proposal,” he said. “It is one of the most significant investment opportunities in the future of Buckinghamshire and its residents.”

“In addition to luminaries like James Cameron, Andy Serkis, Paul Greengrass, Richard Curtis, Jeremy Irons and a host of global figures who support us, we are most touched by the unprecedented level of local support from Buckinghamshire.

Campaign groups such as Save Marlow’s Green Belt had argued the site was inappropriate for the development.

In a Marlow Parish Poll, 85% of those who voted opposed plans to build Marlow Film Studios on greenbelt land.
