Thank you for taking part in the public consultation for the proposed Film Studio Campus at Gartcosh. Please note that the interactive consultation has now ended. You can still view the consultation boards and information on this website to see what our proposals consist of. The project team will now review and reflect upon the feedback received in advance of any planning application submission to North Lanarkshire Council.

If you are aware of someone who does not have internet access and/or requires hard copies of any consultation information and/or feedback forms, you can provide us with their name and address and we will send this information to them. Alternatively, the Design Team can be contacted as below, and anyone can leave their contact details and any comments for the Team.


We hosted a live and interactive consultation event on Wednesday 2nd March (3pm – 7pm), where members of the client and/or design team were available to answer any questions. Where the design team were unable to answer any specific queries on the day, a response was provided within 7 days of the event.

The site, at Auldyards Road, Gartcosh Industrial Park, is a 44 acre site, and is currently vacant. ECFS are working with Scottish Enterprise (the current owners) to bring this development project forward. It has excellent transport links, with existing industrial-class roads and direct link to the motorway network, and located close the availability of existing skilled labour and supply chain services through the central belt and beyond. The Location Plan, submitted with the Proposal of Application Notice, is provided below.
