The studio, which aims to be operational by the end of 2022, located at Thames Valley Science Park, owned by the Univeristy of Reading. 

This is subject to planning approval, and the results of the public consultation however.

Reading Chronicle:

It is hoped that the new site, which is to form a part of the new 'cine-valley' being brough together by the University of Reading, will create up to 3,000 jobs once fully operational, as well as improvements to local transport infastructure as well as improving the local post-covid economy.

Nick Smith, Managing director, said: “The proposed development of Shinfield Studios is a truly exciting opportunity to add much needed film and television production space to the UK’s Studio infrastructure at a time when demand from customers seeking to film in the UK vastly outweighs the supply of recognised film Stages.

"Shinfield Studios will make a quantum difference to the number of projects able to film in the UK which in turn will generate significant inward investment to the UK and create economic benefit to the local community."

The online public exhibition open to residents will take place on Monday, March 1, between 6pm and 8pm.
