Hi everyone

Dies anyone know what film is being filmed arounds Snowsfields/Guinness trust building on Sunday as all the parking bays in the surrounding areas have been suspended and I don’t know where I can park my car without getting a ticket.

I am furious and will be letting the film crew know when I see them but in the mean time where are all the residents supposed to park. We have not been offered alternative parking and no details regarding what’s going on.

I know there's filming next week for 'Pennyworth', a Netflix tv series which has already used Roupel St as a location as reported by James. The usual procedure is to inform locals most affected by the mayhem that ensues when a film crew turns up.

Thank you, there was no notice to residents and no alternative parking when I spoke to the location manager today. He did offer one section of the street which had parking suspension to any residents as he said they did not need this now.
Very disorganised and frankly I’m getting fed up with these film crews and Southwark council who are making money and leaving residents no where to park. Will be complaining to the council on Monday.

This won’t resolve the issue of the parking, but for those curious as to what film is being recorded it is “Last Christmas” (saw the title on the various vans and lorries this morning as I walked past):

Surprised to read of your problems, Se1 girl. Living in a street where we get three or four filming sessions or more taking place each year, often quite major operations, I've been impressed how efficiently the council's Film Office usually handle them. Usually a polite letter from the film company through everyone's letterbox well in advance, negotiations with our residents association (including a donation for the inconvenience), allocation of alternative parking by the Council (with a note to each resident informing them), a detailed timetable, request not to turn on the electric lights in the front window when the film is set in 1815 etc.

Certainly worth you complaining to the Southwark Film Office in this case!

Southwark claims to host 1500 days of filming a year, but the Film Office website doesn't seem to provide a public list of current and future filming arrangements.

My son and I are about to make a formal complaint to Southwark Council.

We are sick and tired of how often our bays get taken over by either filming or works talking far too long.

I believe we should get refunded for the days when we cannot park our cars.

There is nowhere else to park as you rightly state. It's infuriating.

Adding to se1 girl..... last year when my son parked on a bay which the film crew said they no longer needed, a traffic warden issued him a ticket!!! Despite being told it wasn't needed.
