Local Government Filming Protocol 2009

The Local Government Filming Protocol 2009 has been developed under the Local Government Act 1993 to ensure that New South Wales remains “film friendly” while maintaining a proper balance between community and economic benefits.

Council has the care, control and management of these areas and it’s important that film production companies understand this.

Filmakers must refer to the Local Government Filming Protocol 2009 for guidance prior to applying for a film approval.
