Filming on Shad Thames - Friday 22 November

All filming in Southwark is arranged through a company called FilmFixer, acting on behalf of the Council -


FilmFixer work with the Council and liaise with local residents.  They apply to a set of guidelines when agreeing filming. 


During the recent large-scale filming on Shad Thames a number of issues arose during the day and evening that impacted negatively on residents.  This has resulted in the need to review filming guidelines to safeguard residents interests  during any future filming in the area.  STRA will work with FilmFixer, local Councillors and residents during this review and consult with network members.

Hurlingham Party Boat - License Review

The review took place 22 Nov. Update here from Adele Morris:

"Quick update - will send more details later.

After much deliberation and agreement with the police, the licence was not revoked. However, there were very stringent conditions added to the licence - the most significant of which is that they are not allowed to have any events until they have double glazed the windows! Which they won’t be able to do very quickly...

They do have a right to appeal, which they may or may not win.

Best wishes

Anood, our local Councillor, contacted Caroline Pidgeon at the GLA, and received the following reply.  Anood will follow up in the New Year.


You will see from the links below that this is a problem that is receiving London-wide attention.
