Apply to film in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames

Due to the high volume of applications we are receiving, we currently require at least two weeks' notice for all filming applications. If your filming request is complex, we may need more notice to process it.

Three weeks' notice is required for shoots that require additional support like traffic management (TM) and mobile plant licences. Four weeks' notice is required for applications requesting a road closure.

We always recommend you call to discuss your application before applying.

Make your application

Applications to film in the borough should now be made directly via FilmApp.

Start my application

All applications will incur a charge of £10 to be paid by credit or debit card at the point of application.

If you have a shoot at multiple locations over two or more days, please call the Film office on 020 8487 5157 to discuss before you apply.

Before you film

We have put together a guide which details what you need to consider before you apply to film.

This includes information on our fees and charges, insurance, parking and use of electricity on shoots.
