Suffolk County Council bosses have hailed the positive effect Screen Suffolk has brought to the county after it surpassed its first year target of filming days in just seven months.
Screen Suffolk won the contract last summer to bring filming for TV shows and films, as well as photoshoots to the county, which would help boost the local economy.
After exceeding the 100 filming days first year target by the end of July, Suffolk County Council said it was looking forward to seeing it grow.
Council leader Colin Noble said: “The first year of Screen Suffolk’s work in the county has definitely seen a positive effect. July was an especially successful month with the highest monthly number of filming days to date - a total of 45.
“I look forward to seeing Screen Suffolk secure further opportunities for producers to use Suffolk as a filming backdrop in months and years to come.”
