Re: Busking rules in Sydney ... your area?
Wow, I'm stunned. 10 million in insurance. I'm an electrician, and I never needed more than 2 million. Does the permit have your name on it or is it anonymous? I can see a workaround here where the community of buskers gets together to trade permits for a, day, a week, get what I mean? Just pay your 40 a year, and organize!
I don't know what my local laws are, now I'm curious...
Polly you make a heck of an argument comparing the beggars and the others who need no permit.
You should use the internet and get petitions and affect some change, that is unacceptable.
Sydneys "councils" need to be shown that they are losing more money this way. How many buskers are gonna buy 10 mil in insurance? Surely they would collect more fees if that was eliminated. If they don't listen to that, then it's hopeless.
