And as entertainment permission has already been granted for Regulated Entertainment on these spaces - why does anyone need to fill in applications forms for additional permission - as such permission can hardly be refused?
Well for example they might (as owners) refuse permission for naked mud wrestling. As regulators they cannot refuse permission for it.
Sheffield City Council did this without the attendant publicity for the whole of the area as bounded by the Inner Ring Road. Amongst other things it has allowed all sorts of processions - not least the Lord Mayor´s Parade!!
They also licenced all the major venues they own such as parks. It has saved a load of hassle..............
