This was refused last week. This was for a restaurant to put on burlesque dancing. Much of the discussion questioned if this would be a restaurant with sexual entertainment or a sexual entertainment venue with food.
How do you respond to claims that this is an inappropriate location? This location is ideal as it is small, it is not in the main shopping area making it quite advantageous.
This provides them with somewhere else to go. The licence was refused on the grounds that it would be detrimental to the surrounding area, given the cultural importance of things like Reading Abbey.

Councillors also highlighted in their refusal that it was primarily SEV instead of a restaurant, and not restaurant with an added SEV as the applicants tried to argue. The article poses the question as to whether a vacant premise is worse for the reputation and image of the city than a thriving strip club.
A question that might be raised about any of premises that authorities seemingly want to drive off our High Streets: betting shops, charity shops, poundshops etc…. Here is a list as far as I am able to establish it of all d SEVs in England and Wales as mapped above : some of these have ceased trading e.
If readers know of any clubs not included please contact me:. The following offer regular striptease but are d under the Licensing Act on a waiver to standard conditions.
Some of the local authorities concerned have or about to adopt the new powers of licensing under the SEV regime. Again, some may have ceased trading recently:.
This list made be incomplete, and any information on other d spaces offering regular striptease or like entertainment would be appreciated. Some of these are still pending Judicial Review of the refusal. There were 8 objections recorded in total. All corrections or additions welcomed!
