Buskers

It is possible that noise from buskers could cause a statutory nuisance within the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 - but this is extremely unlikely.

However, buskers can be controlled by Surrey County Council since they effectively 'own' the street and can permit or not permit such activity.
