Filming (inc. drones)

Filming activity in our area of jurisdiction (commercial stills, broadcast news and location filming requests) requires the prior approval of the Harwich Haven Authority. This includes filming on any structures we own, including Ha’penny Pier and Landguard beach, Felixstowe, Suffolk. The permission process isn’t onerous and indeed we will be happy to advise you about the best locations, local tides, etc. We can also provide Pilot Launch vessels for many media requests.

We do not allow drones to be launched from our land or properties and all drone operators need to have the necessary documentation to do so from the Civil Aviation Authority. If you would like to discuss using a drone within our area of jurisdiction please call to discuss in more detail.
