Filming Permit Application

Kingborough Council regulates commercial filming permits to make sure that activities are carried out according to our safety and amenity regulations, and that disruptions to residents and businesses are minimal.

You will require a permit if you are wishing to film in any public areas within the Kingborough Council municipality for commercial purposes. A filming permit application must be submitted at least one week prior to filming.

A permit is not required if you are filming on private property. The Kingborough municipality has large areas managed by the Parks and Wildlife Service, and if you require permission to film on these locations, please contact Parks and Wildlife directly.   For more information please visit their website: Drone use in Tasmania’s Parks and Reserves.

If you require any further information, please contact us on 6211 8200.

  • Agreement

    I acknowledge the terms and conditions to film in the Kingborough municipality as outlined below, and agree with those terms. The terms below form part of the terms and conditions to film/photograph in the Kingborough municipality. Please make sure that you read, understand and abide by these at all times: 1. The wishes of members of the public are respected. The issuing of a permit does not give exclusive use of the filming area, therefore you must not restrict members of the public from accessing the facilities in any way. 2. The Council is indemnified against any injury or damage to person or property as a direct result of your activities. 3. There is no risk or unnecessary disturbance to passers-by or businesses, and any impact on traffic flow or pedestrian flow is minimised. 4. If required, a traffic management plan be developed and approved before the scheduled filming. A traffic management plan is required if there are any road closures, or disruption to normal traffic flow. 5. Film locations are left clean and tidy and all rubbish is removed. 6. The applicant is required to notify nearby residents and businesses of filming operations and make every effort to minimise disruption of regular activities. 7. Filming and associated activities do not damage any infrastructure. 8. Any instruction given by an authorised Council officer must be followed. 9. A permit to film does not include any parking concessions. Therefore, if filming is to take place in areas that have controlled parking restrictions (e.g. time limits etc.) these restrictions are to be adhered to at all times unless separate approval has been given. 10. If filming at a private property, permission must be sought from the owners. 11. The applicant shall have and maintain for the period of the permit, a policy of insurance against risk to the public, and such a policy to be of a minimum amount of $20 million in respect of any one claim. The amount insured may vary depending on the size, nature and risk associated with the filming project. A Certificate of Currency outlining the nature and level of insurance cover must accompany the application. The applicant must immediately notify the relevant insurers and Council in writing of any occurrence or accident likely to give rise to a claim under the insurance policy and give all information and assistance as may be reasonably practicable in all the circumstances. 12. The applicant is responsible for any damage to property in the area of the issued film permit, or damage as a result of the event, and undertakes to promptly compensate upon request. 13. This permit applies only to the public area within the Kingborough Council municipal area during the stated period.

Wedding Ceremony Notification Form

Council has no arrangement whereby the public can reserve public areas for weddings. Once we are notified of your wedding ceremony, a notation is made on our calendar to provide a record of who is likely to use the area; this will help minimise any potential clashes with other weddings or events. However, not everyone notifies Council of their wedding ceremony, and more than one wedding in a public area may occur.

Council’s requirements are:

  • the area must remain accessible to the public at all times;
  • area is to be left in a clean and tidy condition after the event;
  • confetti, rice, or similar, is not to be used; and
  • order to prevent any broken glass, all drinks should be served from non-breakable drinking vessels.
