Filming and photography
Property NSW supports the Local Government Filming Protocol 2009 for location filming in NSW and is responsible for issuing licence agreements for filming and photography activities. All requirements of the Protocol must be met before a licence is issued and the activity is approved.
Amateur photographers are not required to pay a fee or gain a permit to photograph unless it involves additional activity such as blocking streets, constructing a set or additional parking. The Protocol provides guidance in processing high impact stills shoots.
To apply for a licence, submit a film and photography application form to Property NSW or contact the venue hire department for further assistance.
