Filming permit

Under Filming Activities Policy 080, production companies seeking to film major activities within Campaspe Shire are required to lodge a filming permit application for Council approval.

Permits are required to recognise the social and economic benefits derived from filming activities, while protecting the interests of Council, its residents, traders and visitors. 

Do I need to lodge an application?

Major films for television, online or cinema production are required to apply for a filming permit. This applies to all digital and electronic filming mediums, including, but not limited to:

  • Television shows
  • Feature and short films
  • Documentaries
  • Music videos
  • Internet based exhibitions

This excludes personal filming and short filming activities that highlight the tourism potential of the municipality.
