Belfast Harbour's plans for a new £19 million film studio complex on the shores of Belfast Lough have been approved in principle by Belfast City Council's planning committee.

Formal approval is dependent upon no substantive objections emerging from a second round of neighbourhood consultations.

The North Foreshore Film Studios project will cover around three hectares.

It will feature a 6,132 square metre film studio and sound stage, a 2,137 square metre workshop and 2,970 square metre production space.

It will face competition from both already established and recently consented TV and film studios in Belfast.

The North Foreshore of Belfast Lough is an extensive former landfill facility that has been transformed into the largest development site in the city.
