Filming in Thurrock

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – location filming

During periods of restrictions, we will consider requests for filming activity on council-owned land or highways on a case-by-case basis. At this time, we cannot guarantee that any filming can take place but we will keep this under review as the situation changes.

When you apply to film, please give as much detail as possible for us to determine your request.

Filming activity and the activities of associated cast, crew and contractors must follow British Film Commission coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance. For each filming request, we will need a full risk assessment including all COVID-19 risks associated with the proposed activity at each location.
