Filming in Sydney & NSW | Film Friendly NSW | Local Government
On 22 March, 2009, the NSW Government announced a new Local Government Filming Protocol designed to reduce red tape, energise the state's screen industry, and encourage more filmmakers to shoot their productions in New South Wales.
The Local Government Filming Protocol 2009 makes it easier for filmmakers to work on locations around the state by giving all Councils one set of rules for processing approvals.
The new system works both ways, with the Government having also established a Code of Conduct for the screen industry, designed to ensure that filming is sensitive to community needs.
The Protocol came into force on 30 March, 2009.
