It’s simple. The tradition of busking keeps the community vibrant and locals, tourists stay longer and spend more money in the town and enjoy entertainment. In addition street performers help keep the streets safe ask anyone of them and they have helped or prevented multiple issue by just being there.

Its great to hear some music on the street, it’s a hell of a lot better than all the people screaming.

all streetart in which ever form it takes is socially cohesive ' it brings people together in a positive way, for example music'. many people go into city because of the lively street scenes. shops benefit from this activity. there will always be exceptions , that is why we have exceptional councils and governments, which we peacefully tolerate.

These people do this for a legitimate living and provided theyre not causing any issues then why should they be excluded ? I personally like to see and hear buskers and each case should be judged on its merits not some dictatorial blanker ban...
