Permits and Requirements

One of the primary goals of SLR is to make filming in the three counties a simple and hassle free experience for both established production companies and emerging filmmakers.

In order to do that we have one point of contact for each county and where your production will involve two or all three counties, the county where most filming is planned will assist as liaison with the other two counties.

There are no fees for filming in the SLR region. However, there are potential charges in relation to other aspects of your production such as newspaper advertisements for Road Closure Orders or other logistics.

All production companies filming on roads, parks and other spaces owned or managed by one of the three local authorities must have adequate insurances including indemnification of the local authority as well as an appropriate event management plan and risk assessments.

Health & Safety can be a daunting responsibility for emerging filmmakers but it is a vital consideration for all productions. If you are unsure about what is required, we can help you take the steps you need to be compliant and make your production a safe experience for all involved.

The first step is to contact us and tell us about your plans.
