See article from strippingtheillusion.blogspot.com

Now Peachez was operating legally with a SEV Lecense issued from the Council back in October 2017 as there were no indications of any illegality and as followers of the blog know you cannot apply moral judgements on venues. Now the councillors Phil Davies and Jean Stapleton decided to use planning laws to close the venue by declaring it as unsuitable for the location. So Peachez appealed and the national planning inspectorate had to make a decision on if the club was suitable. And this is where it gets exciting and has much wider impact. Well the directorate has ruled in favour of the club and it said it creates a positive impact on the night time economy. The directorate also order the council to pay the club's costs.

News April 2018: Retrospective planning permission refused

Peachez opened in November 2017 and now seems to be playing catch-up with some of the council permissions required.

The bar has asked for opening hours of 9am to 5pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The council refused planning permission for a change from nightclub to lap dancing club and the venue will now be asked to revert to being a nightclub.

However the club is appealing the council decision and can remain open until the appeal is heard.

Licensing moralists have imposed a cap of eight lap dancing clubs in Birmingham city centre -- saying they will allow no more to open.

The council's licensing committee claimed there are fears that any more strip clubs, particularly in the Broad Street and pub and club areas, would lead to the city getting a sleazy reputation.

See article from birminghammail.co.uk

Adult World, on Hinckley Street has applied to Birmingham City Council for a Sexual Entertainment Venue licence. It already accommodates a sex shop and sex cinema but bosses want to introduce lap dancing and stage strip shows every two hours.

The council's licensing enforcement team has not objected but ordered the shop to take down a giant illuminated sign of a semi-naked woman which sits above the main entrance.

As part of the application Adult World has provided a list of its house rules which includes requiring photographic identification from anyone before they are employed to dance, no touching between dancers and customers other than to place money in their hands, not encouraging customers to throw money at performers or offer gratuity, no simulated sex acts and a zero tolerance drugs policy. Dancers will also be prohibited from giving out or receiving personal details.

The council's Licensing and Public Protection committee approved the licence application on July 23.

West Midlands Police have been informed but have not commented on the application.

A club on John Bright Street, central Birmingham, has been refused a licence by Birmingham City Council. This venue, which previously offered striptease before becoming a burlesque club ('Rouge') was refused a licence on the basis of being unsuitable within the locality and with reference to other land use in the vicinity.

What a load of bollox. John Bright Street is in a desolate corner of Birmingham city centre that is penned in by 2 legs of inner ring road dual carriage way, on the other side a busy little road which is one of the few ways in and out of the shopping area...and on the fourth side is the concrete monstrosity of New Street station. The only businesses that hang in there are a few pubs, a cinema and a theatre. It is the most suitable area in town.

News, March 2018: Trail goes cold

The criminal investigation into Legs 11 has gone cold despite police believing the club was defrauding and drugging customers.

West Midlands Police confirmed there were no active lines of enquiry stating no further action would be taken into the former Birmingham lap dancing venues.

No-one has ever been arrested and it means the probe has now hit a brick wall relying on new information coming from the public.

News, July 2017: Closed after police raid

A report at a Birmingham Council licensing committee meeting claimed that a concerted, sophisticated and highly organised criminal operation was being run from the Broad Street branch of the Legs 11 lap dancing club.. This was said to include financial fraud and human trafficking.

A mass raid resulted comprising of a campaign group, Hope for Justice, city council officials, trading standards, Revenue and Customs officials, police and even the Red Cross.

Inevitably the raid failed to find evidence of trafficking. No arrests were made, and the campaign group Hope for Justice said no hard evidence of people trafficking was uncovered. A spokesman said that none of the girls wanted to engage with us, or with the police. Some of the girls talked about having to 'pay to work', maybe 100 or something, but then potentially being able to earn more than that. Some of them earn very good money -- 1,000 a night perhaps, but others much much less. He added:

In this particular case, we didn't see clear cases of girls being forced to be there.

Later it was revealed that the club had lost its licence over fraudulent transactions targeted at customers. The club was investigated over 17 fraud-related allegations since 2013, police said.

Some customers paid for dances in a private area but additional transactions were taking place that they had not authorised, Supt Parsons added. One victim claimed he had lost as much as 19,417. It was also reported that customers were routinely overcharged by the venue which turned over 1.6m in one six-month period.

The venue is now a pie shop.

The future of a Bournemouth lap dancing club will be decided by councillors in December, after 15 people objected to its licence being renewed.

One of the people who has objected is Reverend Tim Matthews, of St Swithun's Church. He called for the council to place its recent inspection report in the public domain so residents could judge for themselves whether the club should be allowed to continue operating. He clearly would like to see local people lose their jobs over a few transgressions. He spewed:

The imposition of further restrictions will require vigilant monitoring and future inspections all at public expense. The only effective way to demonstrate the seriousness of SEV licence breaches is to refuse to renew this SEV licence.

He also objected on moral grounds stating:

In my pastoral work I constantly deal with the damage caused when impressionable people are lured away from their committed relationship partners.

Surely an organisation with such a deep rooted problem with child abuse have absolutely no right to moralise to others. They should set their own house in order first. Its seems an awful lot more clerics have been prosecuted for sexual abuse than lap dancing customers.
