Battle Over Buskers In Perth CBD

Screen Shot 2014-02-03 at 10.52.47 AMSome 50 office workers have petitioned the office of Perth Lord Mayor, Lisa Scaffidi, hoping to ban live performance from the William Street end of the Murray Street Mall (where the entrance to the underground train station is, if you need a landmark).

Apparently a number of complaints regarding noise levels were received by the city, but an inspection in April last year found no excessive noise, hence the petition currently being considered.

Interestingly, the complaint, which has been organised by Jenny Morrow of Calytrix Technologies, comes from only five businesses in the area: Calytrix, CBD Wellness Centre, The Council For The Ageing WA, Yes Centre and Conducive IT Consultants, so one would be hard pressed to contend that the 50 individual complaints represent a decent cross-section of the business-rich neighbourhood apparently being affected.

The matter is being considered by the city marketing committee on Tuesday, so if you want to make your own views known, there’s no time like the present. Head here
