Film and photography permissions

Scarborough Borough Council welomes inquiries for photography, filming and television productions.


The Council must be informed of all filming activity taking place on public property within their area and permissions must be granted by all relevant parties before any filming activity can take place. 


It is the responsibility of the production company to consult all those affected by filming and inform them of arrangements.


Scarborough Borough Council is a member of the Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Filming Friendly Partnership in association with Screen Yorkshire. 


The Film Friendly Partnership sets out a code of best practice to ensure that the locality and the region get the maximum benefit from the publicity, press and tourism opportunities that filming can bring. The initiative also aims to ensure that filming in the region happens as easily and effectively as possible, so that production companies have a positive experience of filming here and return for their next project.
