TV support depot on Lincoln’s Inn Fields – update

We have some new information about the matter of video crew parking.  Here’s a letter from Fiona Dean, Assistant Director for Culture & Customer Services to Cllr Fullbrook.

‘Each parking bay costs £1,507 per unit per day on this site. There are small administration charges for the film liaison work, which are dependent on the scale and nature of filming. This ranges from £125 per shoot upwards. Total parking income each year is around £60,000, or around 40 units issued licenses each year. This varies from year to year, for example 2007 saw 30 units and 2008 had 55.’

Of course this money isn’t necessarily spent locally – it is quite close to the ‘uneconomic’ cost of repairing the railings, which I recall was roughly £80,000.  It might have been possible to raise the difference locally, if the council had been minded to ask.
