Are there costs associated with obtaining permits

Yes, fees are applicable to all permits and locations. These fees are determined by a variety of factors, encompassing the specific site, the nature of your filming project, the scale of your cast and crew, as well as the duration of your shoot.

What else do I need to support my application?

The specific documentation needed can vary depending on the nature of your project. Rest assured, we’re here to guide you through the process and advise on all necessary documents. As a general standard, you will typically require:

  • A Risk Assessment
  • Public Liability Insurance with coverage of £10 million
  • A detailed filming activity location map
What notice period do I need to give?

The notice period duration hinges on the specific filming location. While we can expedite permit requests within 24 hours, we recommend allowing ample time for seamless planning. For small-scale productions, a minimum of three days’ notice is advisable. Medium-scale projects benefit from around five days’ notice, while larger productions should aim for a 10-day advance notice period.

It’s important to note that filming on highways using a stop/go system necessitates a minimum of five working days’ notice. For any road closures, a more extended lead time of 12 weeks is essential to ensure proper arrangements.

By adhering to these notice periods, you contribute to the success of your production and the efficient coordination of all involved parties.
