Filming in Thurrock

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – location filming

We are currently considering all requests for filming activity on council-owned land or highways on a case-by-case basis. When you apply to film, please give as much detail as possible.

For each filming request, we will need a full risk assessment. Filming activity and the activities of associated cast, crew and contractors must follow British Film Commission coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance. We may ask for additional coronavirus (COVID-19) safety precautions to be put in place.
