Kensington and Chelsea council cracks down on noisy buskers
Kensington and Chelsea Council have proposed to restrict the number of buskers playing in the west London borough.
It comes after a sharp rise in complaints about the noise from residents and staff at nearby museums.
Under the plans Exhibition Road, a popular busking hotspot, will become a red zone, which will ban musicians completely.
A purple zone will also be introduced outside Earl's Court station, where performers will have to follow a strict code of conduct enforced by a Public Spaces Protection Order.
Those breaking the rules could face a £1,000 fine or a £100 on-the-spot penalty.
