Changes to the Busking and Street Entertainment PSPOs                  

In July 2019 Public Spaces Protection Orders (PSPOs) were introduced in certain areas of Kensington and Chelsea to address the detrimental impact some performances were having on residents and local businesses. The PSPOs have reduced busking complaints by 54 per cent in the first three months (July to October 2019) and between July and February by 15.5 per cent, compared to the same period in 2018/19.

A six-month review of the PSPOs was undertaken to review the effectiveness of the PSPOs and to identify if any variations are required to deal with displacement and remaining high impact areas.

A Key Decision report  sets out the findings of the six-month review and details the resulting proposed variations to the PSPOs, and the supporting evidence for each variation. This can be found on the Council's website by clicking here.

We are keen to hear the views of residents, businesses, street entertainers/buskers and other stakeholders on these proposed variations, the closing date for response is 8 January 2021.
