Nigel Don MSP raised the need for a Scottish Film and TV studio in a members’ debate last year.
He has welcomed the news that the Scottish Government, Creative Scotland and Scottish Enterprise still want a production village.
Mr Don told the Review: “I’m glad we are getting closer to a resolution. I see more and more movies being shot here only for the location shots, but post production moving down south or overseas.
I will continue to speak to the relevant stakeholders and make the case not just in economic terms but also the benefit this will bring to the local community.”
