Balloons show the true scale of proposed film studio buildings

It is difficult to grasp the true scale of the proposed Marlow Film Studio so we created a demonstration. The balloon is 22 m high – the height of the proposed soundstages. It shows how the buildings would dominate the area and change Marlow’s character from an attractive riverside town to an industrial conurbation.

The area proposed for development spans over 90 acres of green land and Greenbelt affecting all of Marlow and the neighbouring towns of Bourne End, High Wycombe and Little Marlow. When you’re next passing by, picture huge industrial warehouses lining the A4155. No more poplar trees, no more views across to Winter Hill and no more natural green space. If you’ve seen the new Shinfield Studios next to the westbound M4 you’ll know how bad it would be. And you’d have plenty of time to admire the buildings because if it gets the go ahead you’ll be stuck in traffic jams caused by 4,000 staff commuting to and from the studio every day.

Object against these monstrosities now – protect what you value by preserving our Greenbelt.
