We welcome buskers and street entertainers that enhance the experience, atmosphere and vibrancy of the town centre. It is in everyone's interest to have a positive relationship with all users of public spaces which includes buskers and street entertainers.
A draft code of practice for buskers and street entertainers has been prepared and has been developed based on best practice from a number of other local authorities. The code of practice aims to set proportionate and reasonable limits to balance the rights of performers and local businesses/residents.
We are carrying out a consultation on the draft codes of practice and welcome any views or comments you may have:
