Action on amplified busking


Amplified sound in public spaces can be very disturbing, especially to local residents and businesses.  I successfully tabled a motion to the Council last year to address this issue so it's good to see a commitment by the Council to act. 

At a meeting of the Council's Culture Committee on Tuesday this week, a follow up report contained a promise to moderate unreasonably loud disturbances caused by amplified buskers and street entertainers.  As a result of the discussion on the report, I expect another report in the autumn exploring the powers available to the Council and proposals for online reporting of amplified noise issues. The report is item 9.1 on the agenda here
