Yes. Council issues permits for busking on Council-controlled land, such as footpaths, the Esplanade and parks.
There are two types of Busking Permits – an Initial Permit and a Standard Permit.
An Initial Permit is for four weeks (unless otherwise stated) and will be issued if the busker has not had a permit before.
A Standard Permit is for 12 months (unless otherwise stated) and will be issued if the busker has previously had an initial permit and wishes to continue busking.
