We consulted on our updated busking and street entertainment proposals between 24 September and 1 November 2020, and received over 900 responses.
Thanks to all those who had their say. We have reviewed all these responses and made some changes to our proposals as a result. In doing so, we have tried to balance the feedback and concerns of those who live, work and perform in Westminster.
Key changes include an additional pitch in Covent Garden and amplification in James Street, a reduced licence fee, and the removal of some requirements from the licensing conditions.
The updated policy proposals will be considered by the council’s licensing committee on 25 November 2020.
