Construction block the busking pitch

There are construction works happening next to the pitches marked for busking. The noise of the constructions makes it impossible to perform without amplification. Additionally, the walking space is reduced and makes it impossible for musicians to locate themselves in the demarcated spaces without obstructing the road. Please find an attached photo taken on Wednesday, July 14, 2022 at 17:00 of Pitch number 3. There is no way in which we can perform with our violate The Code of Conduct either causing an obstruction or ensuring that no one can trip over our equipment.

I would like to propose a pitch next to the Disney store, another in front of Jhon Lewis store that are points with ample public space and high audience attendance.

Likewise, the use of amplifiers should be allowed in a regulated way, because string acoustic instruments cannot be heard on a crowded track without amplification.

Thank you in advance for your time and consideration, looking forward to hearing from you.
