Twickenham Film Studios gets a lifeline

Agreed sale will see the studios’ work continue and all jobs saved, say administrators

Campaigners attempting to avert the closure of Twickenham Film Studios are holding their breath after it was announced on Tuesday that a sale had been agreed to save the site, but the buyer’s identity would remain secret until the deal had gone through.

Gerald Krasner, administrator for the studios, said: “It is the purchaser’s intention to continue to trade as studios and to preserve all the jobs.” He said the buyer had handed over a non-returnable deposit of £100,000, but would not reveal the full purchase price.

As well as the superb work done by the action group, I think that we should also recognise that Richmond Council look to have played an important role by sticking to their own planning rules and insisting on a period of marketing as a studios before granting planning permission for any change of use.
