Approval for Filming - Canterbury-Bankstown Council - New South Wales

Description

You may need this approval to direct, produce or conduct filming activities in a public area. Filming is the recording of images (whether on film, video tape, electronically or by other means) for exhibition, broadcast (such as by cinema, television, the internet or other means) or sale.

Filming projects can involve a range of activities that require approval from the council (e.g. use of public land, closing a road, erecting temporary structures). You may lodge a filming proposal with the council seeking approval for the activities involved in the filming project.

Not all public areas are under council jurisdiction. Other authorities may have to be contacted before any filming can take place, such as the police and state government departments.
