To grant use of Wellington Road car park,
Harwich, and to permit parking on Harwich Green, for exclusive use
of Jackson River Films on May 4-5 (car park) and 4-6 (Green)
The production company had requested use of Wellington Road car park on 6 May, but due to its proximity to a polling station on that day this was refused to ensure access for voters/polling station staff.
Tendring District Council, as part its Memorandum of Understanding with Creative England, supports production filming within the district as being of wider benefit to the local economy; this aligns with the adopted Creative and Cultural Strategy.
The request will also provide a guaranteed income for two council assets (a car park and open space) for the days of use, where ordinarily they may be unused.
Option 1 - To grant use of council assets to
support the production
Option 2 - Not to grant use of council assets to support the production
Option 3 - To partially grant use of council assets to support the production
