A local film company, shooting in the area over the coming few months have requested use of Carnarvon House for 6 weeks as a base for their crew and to carry out some filming.
Tendring District Council as part of 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.
Use of this building for the 6 week period will provide a contribution towards the cost of the empty property and enable TDC to apply for a further period of NNDR empty property rate relief once vacated.


To grant a 6 week licence over Carnarvon House to The Guild of The Night Ltd.
