Hollywood firm agrees deal to build Dagenham studio image

Barking and Dagenham Council has signed a deal with a Hollywood developer to build a film and TV production centre in Dagenham.

Eastbrook Studios London will be the capital’s largest studio campus and is expected to create 1,200 jobs and contribute £35m per year to the local economy.

Plans by Hackman Capital Partners (HCP) include up to 12 sound stages, three acres of backlot, offices and ancillary space.

Claire Symonds, acting chief executive of Barking and Dagenham Council, said: 'When we took the decision to set up our pioneering urban regeneration company, Be First, to accelerate the pace of growth in the borough, it was precisely this kind of transformative project that we wanted them to deliver with us and the private sector.

'There’s no doubt that welcoming a world-class film studio to Dagenham East will support the long-term success of the UK’s booming film and TV production industries. The studio will not only boost our local economy, benefiting local people by creating 1,200 much needed jobs, it is also expected to pump £35m a year back into the UK economy.'
