News March 2014: Deep Blue and Wild Cats lose Judicial Review

The two clubs lost their legal case against closure by Leeds Council on thinly veiled morality grounds. The judge ruled that any old bollox excuse will do.

The decision confirms that the discretion available to local authorities to refuse renewal or initial license consent is very wide, and that restrictive policies can still be justified so long as there is a clear justification given.

News December 2013: Arbitrarily Selected for Closure

Half of Leeds' six strip venues had applications to renew their sexual entertainment venue (SEV) licences rejected by the city council.

The council claimed the decision was taken to refuse three licences due to the number of buildings with sensitive uses nearby to the location of the premises .

News July 2013: Morality policy adopted

Leeds Council has adopted the policy to close table dancing businesses that have done nothing except offend the morality of councillors.

The number of lap dancing clubs in Leeds will now be set at a maximum of 4 but it is not yet clear how Leeds will select the businesses for closure and how they will work around the illegality of closing businesses without reason.

Existing licences would be reviewed when they come up for renewal later this year, the council said. The new morality rules will come into force from September.

News March 2013: Moralists recommend that 3 lap dancing clubs should be shut down

A new draft policy recommends that Leeds City Council imposes a limit of four lap dancing clubs, three fewer than are currently operating. It also suggests banning strip joints from sensitive locations , for example near schools and religious buildings. The policy is up for public consultation.

News, June 2018: Feminists object to licence renewal

Feminist campaigners from Support After Rape and Sexual Violence Leeds (SARSVL), Leeds Civic Trust and a person living near the club in Crown Street have made objections.

In a letter, a member of the feminist group said the council missed an opportunity when it introduced its policy to limit such clubs in the city centre to four. The gorup argues the strip club directly discriminates against women by normalising the sexualisation and objectification of women and reinforce gender stereotypes of male insatiable sexuality and female sexual availability.

Leeds Civic Trust says the strip club causes harm to the local area which is full of buildings of historic importance, including the Grade I listed Corn Exchange.

News July 2016: Appeal Withdrawn

A police raid at Leicester's Angels lap dancing club last year found CCTV footage showing breaches of miserable council rules forbidding physical contact between the strippers and the customers. Strippers were recorded straddling and fondling punters.

In January of this year Leicester Council decided to revoke the club's sexual entertainment license. The owners of the club decided to initiate the appeal process.

However after a court hearing, and In the light of the CCTV evidence, the owners of the club have now withdrawn their appeal. And as a result of a court decision, the owners have been made to pay £15,500 in costs to the council for the time spent preparing the council case.

News January 2016: A touch too much fun

See article from

Miserable councillors in Leicester have refused a lap dancing license renewal over claims that customers were having too much fun.

Angels, in New Park Street, off Braunstone Gate, could now face closure after having its application for a renewed sexual entertainment licence rejected by Leicester City Council because it strippers were touching and fondling customers in an intimate and sexual manner.

Members of the council's licensing committee made the ruling after viewing CCTV footage obtained by police during a raid on the club on December 5.

Council licensing team manager Bobby Smiljanic whinged:

I was shown CCTV by the police which showed performers and members of the public clearly touching and fondling in an intimate and sexual manner.

She said the footage also showed strippers straddling customers - another forbidden practice.

The club is now considering appealing against the refusal at magistrates court. It has 21 days to lodge an appeal and can stay open until then and until any such hearing concludes.
