2013: Hertfordshire Building Futures Awards - Winner of the Retrofit for the Future Award
2012: East of England RTPI - Planning Achievement Award
Celebrating the incredible craftsmanship that went into producing the Harry Potter series of movies, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ ™ opened in March 2012. The tour celebrates the artistry and cinematic excellence of the highly skilled production team, which brought to life the most successful film franchise in history at the world class Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden, within which the attraction sits.
Over the last eleven years, Terence O’Rourke has supported Warner Bros. by providing planning consultancy, environmental and landscape architecture services for both the Studio Tour and the adjacent film production studios. We delivered the planning consent for both, without the need for environmental impact assessment and without the application being ‘called in’ by the Secretary of State.
The economic value of film-related tourism attractions is well documented, and we worked actively with the local planning authority and statutory bodies in advancing the very positive local and national economic benefits of the scheme.
We continue to work closely with the Warner Bros. team supporting the tour in creating an exceptional visitor experience, and assisting the production studio team to provide state-of-the art facilities to support the UK as a global leader in the creative industries.
