To the horror of miserable neighbours, David Kay transformed his house into one of Britain's leading swingers' clubs.
The five bedroom property boasts two dungeons featuring spanking benches, torture chairs, examination tables and suspension
equipment. The back garden had been filled with a hot tub, stocks and a giant crucifixion cross for use in sex games.
New Forest District Council has now issued an enforcement notice against the owner for turning the house into a business without
Shameful conservative councillor Leslie Puttock claimed he had no moral objection to the activities taking place in the house....BUT... He said:
It's up to them what they do in their own home
...BUT... this was a normal domestic dwelling house that was bought and someone thought there's parking and I can black out the windows and this has become a club and it does not have permission to be one.
There is nobody
absolutely next door ...BUT.. .there are people across the road that are affected by it and the car movements and also the noise - it's not only inside, it's outside as well.
I think they have every right to complain.
In a letter to the council David Kay said:
The guests are asked to bring a voluntary contribution towards the costs of hosting the parties. The total value of contributions amounts to a fraction of the
costs of the rent or mortgage on the property. It is therefore impossible to conclude that the parties held are a commercial entity or for financial gain.
He said there had been no complaints to police about any disturbance.
The council is now refusing planning permission, saying the house is being used as a business, adding:
The use of a dwelling for a club in this rural location is at odds with the quiet and peaceful environment.
A club conflicts with the rural, low key nature of the locality and is of detriment to
the character of the countryside.
This is not an appropriate location for this type of use which would be more suited to a town centre location.
It has gavin Kay until March 11 to stop using the house as a club
and get rid of all his saucy toys.
But kay has now appealed the ruling.
Update: Council moralists do what they do best, shut down local businesses

A sex club in a
Hampshire village must now close down- because council moralists claim it breaks planning rules. The swingers club which is based in a five-bedroom private house boasting two fetish dungeons, lap dancing poles, an array of sex toys and a communal hot tub
lost its case on appeal and must now stop hosting parties.
As reported in the Daily Echo miserable neighbours in the New Forest have complained for years about the venue called JCT2 saying guests parked outside their homes and they even had to
direct lost partygoers to the right address. [such an outrageous imposition!].
New Forest District Council issued an enforcement notice against the property's owner David Kay following the complaints. They claimed he had breached planning rules in
the home called Highlands, off Salisbury Road, in Calmore because he did not apply for a change of use of the premises from residential to a mixed use of residential and a club.
[So in these austere times, its about time that council were a little
bit more open to people being able to use there houses for business. If the only imposition of this club, is that cars park in front of other houses, then the country should be grateful for the business. We probably need every penny to stave off

The swingers club banned from a residential property in Calmore is moving to a kinky hotel in Southampton.
The JCT2 club was ordered to close
after a planning inspector agreed with council planners that it was being run from the residential address as a business, as reported by the Daily Echo.
The man behind the club, Martin Millar, told the Daily Echo that the time was right to move
and confirmed he planned to re-open under the new name of Club Kiss at the end of the month.
A grand opening event is being organised for September 29 at the new location in St Anne's Road.
