Planning approval has now been granted by Liverpool City Council to build two 20,000 sq ft sound studios on land adjacent to the famous Littlewoods Building, off Edge Lane.
The council has already confirmed Morgan Sindall as main contractor on the project.
The firm will start on site this month and the sound stages are expected to be operational by Spring 2021.
Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool, said: “I’m delighted we’ve got the green light to create these new sound stages and I can’t wait to see them welcoming their first productions.
“Being adjacent to the future Littlewoods Film Studios, the new sound studios will transform Liverpool’s ability to provide the TV and Film industry with a complete support package.
“Such is the interest in the city and in these new facilities we’re already getting calls about bookings before we’ve even built them.”
