Plans for a £130 million film studio near Loanhead are to be put on public display next week.

Residents will have the chance to look at the proposals and quiz developers over the ambitious project – to be called Pentland Studios – on land at New Pentland.

The public exhibition, with drop in session, takes place at the nearby Asda store on Wednesday, January 14, between 2pm-7pm.

The studio, which would include a £12m film school for up to 500 students, is being brought forward by ex-Ealing Studios director Jeremy Pelzer and Jim O’Donnell, formerly of Warner Bros.
