Busking guidelines agreed at behind closed doors decision session

The quality of buskers in the City centre may – or may not – change after the York Council announced that it had changed its guidelines for them.

Buskers guidelines

The decision was taken yesterday by a Council official using delegated powers.

What effect the changes will have no one knows as the background report has not been made available to the public!


A restructure of the public health team was also agreed at the same time. There is a similar lack of information in the published background papers.
