Liberal Democrats have welcomed the expansion of Warner Bros studios, which will boost the UK film and TV industry and bring thousands of jobs to our area.
Watford Council’s Development Management Committee approved one of the applications associated with this development and the council has worked closely with Warner Bros in recent years to support them, including by allowing filming across Watford.
The expansion of Warner Bros will add 10 new sound stages and 400,000 sq ft of production space, boosting the UK economy by more than £200 million.
Commenting on the new investment, Lib Dem Elected Mayor of Watford Peter Taylor said:
“This is a huge vote of confidence in Watford and Hertfordshire as a whole and is a real boost to our local and national economy.
“The UK in general and Hertfordshire in particular is a great environment for arts and creative industries. I hope that similar investments continue to provide new opportunities for young people in our area.”
