Filming Applications

Video camera filming

IMPORTANT: Minimum 15 working days’ notice must be given for filming.

Filming on Council owned property, in open spaces and outdoor areas such as footpaths, roads and parks may require Council approval. The Filming Application Form below should be filled out by any business or organisation considering filming on public land within the Fairfield Local Government area.  This form is an application and does not constitute a filming permit or location contract.

Filming in Fairfield is also subject to State Environmental Planning Policy (Exempt and Complying Development Codes) 2008. All Film Makers must review the SEPP - Section 4 - Filming. Under this Policy your Filming Application may require Development Approvals.

Standard filming applicants must be submitted 15 days before the filming takes place. Filming applicants that require road closure approval must be submitted 3 months before the filming takes place.
