Supporting Hertsmere’s economy and the
UK’s film and TV industry to thrive

We’ve created a quick summary of the facts about our proposals. Click here to view.

Sky Studios Elstree is a new, state-of-the-art film and TV studio based in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire. It has 12 sound stages set across 27.5 acres, making it an attractive location for a range of productions across the globe.

Developed by Legal & General, in partnership with Sky and sister company NBCUniversal, we have spent the last few  years learning about local priorities and it’s clear that investing in infrastructure, amenities and the next generation of talent are all key.

As one of the biggest businesses in Hertsmere, we are committed to supporting our neighbouring community and ensuring the benefits of us being here are felt directly by residents. This means new jobs and training opportunities, but also using local suppliers, minimising our environmental impact, and supporting more initiatives, charities, and projects as a long-term partner.

Sky Studios Elstree North

At Sky Studios Elstree we want to continue to attract world-leading productions to the UK and we want them to be made here, in Hertsmere, rather than anywhere else, providing more jobs and boosting the local economy. 

That’s why we have submitted proposals for Sky Studios Elstree North – a 10 sound stage expansion for Sky Studios Elstree which will help support Hertsmere’s economy and the UK’s film and TV industry to thrive. The expansion is set to attract even more world class productions to Borehamwood, deliver 2,000 additional jobs locally, and house a new Sky Up Academy Studios for Hertsmere’s young talent plus space on site for community initiatives, offices, and a large wet grassland area to support new rich habitats.
