A $350-million plan to expand Britain's famed Pinewood Shepperton studios has been shot down by local authorities. Project Pinewood, as it was called, would have featured numerous permanent outdoor sets, expanded studios and post-production facilities, offices, a film school, affordable homes and temporary residences for filmmakers. However, residents complained that the project would have resulted in what a South Buckinghampshire district councilwoman described as a "significant degradation to the local environment and quality of life of local residents." A spokesman for Pinewood Shepperton said the studio intends to appeal the decision. "This project is of national significance and of great benefit not only to our community and region but also to the UK and its creative industries," Andrew Smith, group director of corporate affairs, said.
