Low-impact filming production requests (Allow at least 10 working days for processing)
Low impact productions generally last less than five continuous days and do not require:
- the assembly of temporary buildings or structures
- road closure
- traffic control measures to be implemented during the hours of 5:00 AM - 6:00 PM on a weekday
- operation between the hours of 6:00 PM - 7:00 AM Monday to Saturday, or at any time on a Sunday or public holiday, where that Film Production generates noise
High-impact filming production requests (Allow at least 21 working days for processing)
High-impact film productions are those not classified as low-impact.
Temporary road closures
A temporary part or full road closure may be required. Refer to Request temporary road closure to determine if an application is required, and the process to apply.
Certificate of currency - public liability insurance
A certificate of currency for public liability insurance for a minimum of $20 million covering the duration of the approved production is required at the time of application. Applications without current public liability insurance documents are unable to be processed.
Council reserves the right to deny any film production based on the production scale or content.
A security bond may be required for high-impact film productions to ensure council property is left clean and tidy, and any damage is rectified. The bond will be determined by Council based on a risk assessment of the proposed film production.
Where damage occurs, and it is not fixed at the direction of Council, Council will assess the cost of the damage and deduct it from the bond. Application for the return of the security bond is to be made by completing the Security bond refund request.
