Bridgerton season 2: Windsor advisers should refuse to allow Netflix to film in the city
Windsor advisers appear poised to deny permission for Netflix to film the next series of its hit drama Bridgerton in the city.
The producers of romance Regency, which is the US streaming service’s most-watched series, want to film the second season at Windsor Great Park.
If the plans are approved, this would involve building a film set on land adjacent to the printer at the park for a period of five years, to allow filming on an annual basis for each series during the summer.
The show is a period drama set in the era of regency and stars Julie Andrews, Adjoa Andoh, and many more.
The ensemble built will recreate a London Square at the time of the regency surrounded by false buildings that cover an area of 120 mx 120 m.
None of the buildings will be closed or covered with roofs. In addition, there will also be a portacabin office, independent power and water supply, technology area and storage containers, marquee for costumes, meals and construction, and general garbage dumpsters.
The majority of these installations will only be brought to the site during the shooting week.
To the east of the site, 150 parking spaces will be made available to actors and team members.
Advisors from the Royal Borough of Windsor and the Maidenhead Development Management Committee will meet for the first time in person at the Holiday Inn in Maidenhead on Wednesday, May 19 to consider this request.

Planning officials have recommended that plans be refused for fear of the “loss of openness” of the green belt and will affect the character of the area.
In the report, they write: “The proposal is an inappropriate development in the green belt and would result in a loss of openness to the green belt and lead to the encroachment of development in the countryside.
“” Very special circumstances “do not exist in this case to justify the granting of the building permit and the proposal.
They add: “The proposal would undermine the rural character and appearance of the area and would be detrimental to the recreational value of the public path.
“Insufficient information has been submitted to demonstrate that protected species and / or their habitats would not be affected by the proposal.”
