We welcome filming in our borough and do all we can to support television and film production.

Please read our filming guidance (DOC, 41KB)  our code of practice (PDF 36 Kb) and, if you want to film in our borough, complete a filming application form online at least seven working days in advance.

We do charge for filming on land that we own at a daily rate of £700, which can be apportioned accordingly if you just need the site for a few hours.  

Our guidance is designed to help us work with you to consider all relevant matters in advance of filming.

All filmmakers are required to:

  • Read and agree to our Code of Practice prior to filming and, if filming is on our property, you will need to provide a copy of your public liability insurance, risk assessments and health and safety assessments. Please note: we charge for filming on our property.
  • Notify and/or seek permission from residents and businesses located within the immediate area of intended filming.
  • Notify and/or seek permission from other agencies affected by the filming.
  • Liaise with appropriate facilities management and health and safety staff regarding any filming activity that could have a potential risk to health and safety of third parties (for example, building occupants, visitors, neighbours).


Filming requests are coordinated by the Economic Development team who can be contacted on 020 8207 2277 or by email: economic.development@hertsmere.gov.uk for initial advice if required.
